Grilled Fruit Summer Sangria

The LoveFeast Table girls are known for their sangria. Depending on the season we experiment with flavors and tools needed to create a batch of mingled fruity goodness. This time we gathered summer fruits sweet and delicious, watermelon, peaches and pineapple.

These are fruits we grill on a regular basis. They are all perfect to add as a summer garnish, salsa or in this case sangria.

Once the fruits are grilled and chopped and added to the pitcher the next step is to pour some wine. For this batch we used Black Box Wines. The great thing about Black Box is that 1 box equals 4 bottles of wine. So, after you have drunk the first pitcher of Sangria, you can add another “bottle” amount over the leftover fruit to create a new batch for the next day or to serve to guests who just want only a glass of wine to enjoy.

Each 3L box of Black Box Wine contains the equivalent of 4 bottles of quality, award winning wine and stays good for up to one month.
