Rosé sangria

I love a nice glass of rosé on a hot summer night. However, like most wine snobs, I am really picky about my rosés. I love love love Sokol Blosser’s Rosé of Pinot Noir, which they release every spring, and Riverbench does a nice pinot rosé, too, but please, for goodness sake, don’t offer me a glass of White Zinfandel. Blech.

Until we put in a couple of case orders from our favorite wineries, though, we were stuck with a grocery store selection, and hubby came home with a bottle a while back that I turned my nose up at. We compromised by making sangria out of it.

That’ll do.

What a compromise it was. It was the perfect pre-dinner drink to enjoy out on the back porch with our guests while dinner was on the grill. Cheers to the official start of summer!

Rose Sangria

1 bottle of rosé wine*
12 oz sparkling water
1/2 cup raspberries
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1 peach, sliced
juice of one orange
juice of one lemon
1/2 cup sugar

Combine all ingredients in a pitcher with ice. Stir well and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour before serving. Enjoy!

* It should be drinkable, but not too expensive. Just don’t go with terribly cheap swill.

15 Thoughts on “Rosé sangria

  1. Lovely! I wish we had some going right now.. It’s been so hot here lately that sangria would be perfect.

  2. That sounds really great…and simple! I’m going to have to give it a try soon! Thx for sharing.

  3. I love sangria, but almost never make it with rose. I really should! (also love that you are a Sokol Blosser fan) This sounds great!

    • Right it your neck of the woods, huh? I took a trip to Portland with my mom a few years ago, and we drove down to Willamette Valley and tasted at SB. I was hooked and signed up for their wine club on the spot!

  4. I don’t drink much but sangria is my weakness. This looks super refreshing! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  5. I love all of your drink recipes! The wife and I have been talking about making some sangria for a few days, we have a few bottles of mediocre red that we just can’t bring ourselves to drink on a hot summer day, but now I’m feeling like I should go find a rose to make this happen.

    • So glad you enjoy them! I honestly can’t believe I’ve been able to keep it up for this long as a weekly feature, but it’s a nice way to incorporate seasonal ingredients and mix things up once in a while!

      There’s always time for red wine sangria later, and rose sangria now… or vice versa! 😉

  6. Sounds perfect indeed. Love the raspberries.
