Black Cherry Sangria, fresh cherries, pineapple juice and Mike’s Hard Black Cherry Lemonade, this sangria is sweet, refreshing and bursting with summer flavors!
I love a good sangria! It’s that mixture of fruit and different alcohols that combine and become something spectacular! Today’s recipe for Black Cherry Sangria is just that, spectacular, it surely doesn’t disappoint. But be careful, this one is so refreshing and tasty, it goes down extremely smooth.
You really can’t taste that there is alcohol in it, for me that’s a good thing, but like I said, be careful!!
To me this is just the perfect late summer drink. Cherries are all over the grocery stores right now, on sale even! I suggest picking up a huge bag of them and making a couple batches of this Black Cherry Sangria.
We love sipping it while outside on our back patio, just enjoying life, each other and our doggies! To me that is the perfect summer night. Just relaxing with those that I care about the most. But, let’s be honest, it’s still a scorcher out there and still be pretty hot and muggy out, so sipping on this sangria sure hits the spot!
My “secret ingredient” in this recipe is Mike’s Hard Black Cherry Lemonade. It brings all that deep cherry flavor to this sangria.
You can find Mike’s Black Cherry Lemonade as a six pack as pictured here or even in their Flavors of America pack. I really suggest picking up one of the Flavors of America packs, because then you know you will have something everyone at your gathering will enjoy!
Along with the Black Cherry Lemonade, other flavors in the Flavors of America pack include original Lemonade, Peach and Apple! Yummm, I can’t wait to get my paws on that Peach flavor!

Ahh, I just love that deep purpley-red color as well. So pretty!
What I love most about recipes like these is that I make them myself. I get to enjoy them in the safety of my own home and don’t have to worry about getting a little tipsy!
