Today marks the beginning of #10DaysofTailgate! If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you might have noticed some sneak peaks of things coming your way. I was really honored when Camilla of Culinary Adventures with Camilla invited me to be a part of this great adventure.
To kick off #10DaysofTailgate, I wanted to pick a recipe that would highlight my favorite team – the Auburn Tigers. My husband and I both graduated from Auburn University – and our combined three siblings also graduated from or are currently attending Auburn.
I decided to make a sangria using blueberries and oranges – complete with AU ice cubes! I followed the recipe for my Red, White, and Blue Sangria that I dish out on the Fourth of July. I used a little bit of my blueberry syrup in place of simple syrup too.
War Eagle Sangria
- 1 bottle white moscato wine
- 2 tbsp blueberry syrup
- 2 oranges sliced into rings
- 3/4 C frozen blueberries
- 1 bottle champagne
- In a pitcher combine wine and syrup. Add orange slices, leaving some for garnish, and blueberries. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
- Before serving add the bottle of champagne. Garnish with orange slices.

It really is- with the smell of oranges during each sip.
That sounds SO good!! Looks refreshing – what a great combination of flavors!
Thanks, it’s a good thing my school colors work well together as fruit. 😉
Mmmmmm, Sangria….great tailgate pick.
Genius! I can see green mint and blueberries for tomorrow’s Seahawks game.
That would be so good!!!!
I love sangria! They’re so easy and tasty. Perfect game day libations!
Yes, sometimes you just don’t want beer. 🙂
I love that you mixed moscato and champagne together. Each flavor mixed must make this cocktail refreshing and delicious! Yum, Hugs, Terra
Thanks! I’m a fan of the sweeter wines, and as much as it kills my parents I don’t like reds. Gotta make what I like! 😉
I would like to take a big glass of please. Yes, please..
Love the idea of making a sports team themed sangria. I too made a red white and blue sangria over the summer and must try out this blueberry syrup!
