Skinny Sangria is the ULTIMATE summer cocktail! Loaded with fruit and flavor, this lighter sangria is sweet, sparkling, refreshing, and the perfect sangria recipe for summer!
You know what I love most about this time of year? Aside from the fact that the grass is green and the flowers are in bloom and we can finally step outside without immediately regretting it? I love the fact that our neighborhood is finally coming back to life! Yay for spring!
For the first time in months, everyone is outside. So we can actually talk to one another! And it's making me SO excited for summer. Because one of the things I love most about our neighborhood is the people. And one of the things I love most about summer is the fact that I have more time to spend with them.
Yes, my neighbors and I have been known to spend many a summer afternoon sipping sangria on the back patio. And the thing I love most about this Skinny Sparkling Sangria? It's skinny! And still tastes amazing. Because it's made with Born Sweet Zing™ Organic Stevia Sweetener – Zero Calories, a certified organic, zero-calorie sweetener made from stevia leaves. It has a delicious, clean sweet taste that's perfect for sprinkling in coffee, tea, smoothies, or.....SANGRIA! And right now, Born Sweet Zing is hosting a GIVEAWAY so you can try it for yourself!!
Skinny Sangria Secrets
I used Born Sweet Zing to make a simple syrup for this Skinny Sangria, but it dissolves easily in any beverage. One packet is equal to the sweetness in two teaspoons of sugar, so you don't even need much to make a deliciously sweet beverage that's lower in calories. And best of all, it's available in single-serve packets! Which means you can whip up your own personal glass of Skinny Sparkling Sangria anytime. You don't even need neighbors to share it with.
Of course, the neighbors make the sangria more enjoyable. But really? Can you ever go wrong with sangria in summer? I think not. And this skinny sangria recipe is on its way to becoming my new favorite cocktail recipe. Have I mentioned how much I love this time of year??
