Let me just start out by saying that this goes down a little too easily!
I highly recommend making lots of friends around the campsite and sharing this tasty little beverage. Especially if you plan to eat any of the fruit, a cup or two will be plenty. Trust me.
So, this is camping sangria. Meaning it’s specifically designed to travel.
So, you’ll need a few things:
Once you gather everything you need to make this portable, you’re ready to get to making up a batch of delicious camping sangria!
So, I want to let you know that I first make this on the fly before a camping trip and just used random fruit and soda I had on hand which happened to be grapes, peaches and strawberries. A little bit random. But it wasn’t bad.
Truly, any combination of fruits can work in a sangria. You can get as creative as you want when you pick your fruits. I made another batch and tried to pick more tropical fruits in order to give it that vacationy-vibe!
Try using your own favorite fruits and you can choose your favorite carbonated beverage as well. I used Fresca because, again, that’s what I had. Any carbonated or non carbonated drink works. I just happen to enjoy the bubbles.
You can also try flavored vodka. So that’s another way to customize the taste of this sangria. The possibilities are endless! Every time you go camping, have fun and mix up a new flavor combo to share! It’s a sure way to meet fried around the camp site, I’ll tell you that, ha!
Feel free to share any variations you’ve tried in the comments below.
You’ll see my tropical variation if you click to the left on the image slider above where I used Limoncello (instead of vodka) peaches, pineapples, papaya and cran-pineapple juice for a more tropical flavor. Campsite luau anyone??
Pro tip: A company right here in my hometown of Erie, PA invented these awesome mason jar pour caps. So, after you mix up your sangria, you can turn your mason jar into a seal-able drinking cup to keep out bugs and prevent spills (party foul!). You can buy the mason jar pour caps on Amazon.

Thanks, friends. Happy camping!
