Why I love this rose sangria

To me, nothing says summer more than a good rose. It reminds me of summers in France, sitting on the with friends and being completely relaxed. And, that’s exactly what summer should be, even if it’s a little less relaxing with kids running all around.

So, I wanted to keep this recipe super easy. I know there are a lot of fruits that would go great with rose sangria, but I didn’t feel like chopping, slicing or removing pits (even though a stone fruit would be amazing in this).

I want you to be able to drop some fruit into a pitcher, fill it with wine and let it sit overnight or all morning, and voila, you have sangria. That’s minimal effort is why I went with oranges and raspberries. But, feel free to swap if you want.

How to make rose sangria

Dissolve the sugar. Add the lemon juice, brandy, sugar and triple sec to your pitcher. Stir until the sugar dissolves.

Mix in the wine. Pour in the bottle of rose. I prefer to use a dry one, but use whichever you prefer. Stir the sangria until everything is mixed together.

Soak with fruit. Add your oranges and raspberries, and stir to immerse them into the liquid the best you can. The oranges should naturally float to the top, but don’t worry about it.

Top with bubbles. Let the sangria sit in the fridge for at last a few hours, preferably overnight. Top with sparkling water or club soda before serving. You can even use flavored sparkling water if you want (whatever you have should work).

What is the best kind of rose for sangria?

Rose flavors can vary bottle to bottle, check out the labels to see what undertones and flavors each has. You can use that information to help chose which one will blend with the ingredients you are using in your sangria.

Does sangria have more alcohol that wine?

Yes it does! We are using brandy in this recipe, so that will bring up the alcohol content a bit.

You could use a bourbon or a rum if you did not want to buy a bottle of brandy for the recipe.
