Rosé Sangria – A refreshing summer drink made with a blend of Rosé wine, fresh strawberries, oranges, and brandy. Before serving top with soda water, to make a light, fruity summer cocktail that everyone will love.
Summer for me is all about fruity beverages and grilled meats. So let’s kick start the summer with this light, fruity sangria. It’s budget-friendly and great for entertaining.
Whilst a glass of rosé is delicious on its own, it’s also great for making a jug of sangria. Take the fruity flavours of rosé further by adding some fruits, oranges, sugar, and brandy. I used strawberries and oranges in this recipe, however, feel free to use whatever fruit you like. Raspberries, blueberries, and watermelon chunks are also great additions to this drink.

Rosé Sangria serving tips
Add ice to a glass, and pour over sangria, making sure to ladle some fruit into each glass. Finally, top your glass with soda water for a bit of bubbles.
Tips when making this sangria rosé
Macerate the strawberries with sugar to draw out the juices and add flavour to the sangria.
Pick an inexpensive but tasty rosé wine for your sangria. A dry wine is a good option, however, feel free to use your favourite bottle of wine.
Once you have made the sangria, refrigerate to allow the flavours to infuse. Do not leave beyond 4 hours or the fruit will become soggy and loose colour.
