Sparkling wine sangria, a refreshing drink for hot summer days

On these hot summer days, one of the things I like to do is to drink refreshing cool drinks. I decided to prepare a sangria-like beverage in order to make use of an opened bottle of sparkling wine that was in the fridge.

2.5 dl of sparkling wine
3.3 dl apple cider
3 dl of soda pop
1 peach
30 g of blueberries
5 basil leaves

1. Cut the peach with the skin into a pitcher. Add the blueberries and the basil leaves after being torn.

2. Add the sparkling wine, the cider and the soda pop.

3. Add ice and serve.

Do not add any sugar. The apple cider and soda pop are sweet enough. Drink it ice-cold. It will be a refreshing delight!
