Have you noticed that Rosé is trending? It’s on tee shirts, handbags, and more. Winemakers and vineyards are shipping more Rosé than ever before too. Rosé is a great summertime wine and perfect for outdoor entertaining. It’s served chilled, a lot of times has a twist top, and it’s really refreshing. Even if you’re not a wine-drinker, you should give Rosé a try. I bet you’ll like it.
There’s no mistaking that I enjoy drinking wine. I love a good Cab, a white wine, and of course Rosé. So, when I read Wine Spectator‘s issue all about Rosé, I was inspired to grab a few new bottles for myself. I thought, what better way to enjoy chilled Rosé than serving it in a sangria? Yes, I love the taste of wine by itself. But making a sangria is perfect for outdoor entertaining. You can make big batches, pour in a carafe or big pitcher, and guests can serve theirselves. Easy summer entertaining right? I think so. So, here’s how you make it.
Rosé Wine Sangria
Make this Rosé Wine Sangria - perfect for summertime entertaining. Plus, it's super refreshing! Fresh fruit, ginger beer, chilled Rosé, and simple syrup are all the ingredients you need to pull this off. Serve in a big pitcher for easy entertaining. Garnish with mint if you'd like.
- 750 ml Rosé
- 1 Orange
- 1 Lemon
- 1/2 cup Blackberries
- 1/2 cup Blueberries
- 1/2 cup Raspberries
- 12 oz Ginger Beer
- 1 1/2 oz Simple Syrup
Wash and prep berries. Slice oranges and lemon. Add fruit to pitcher, add Rosé, add ginger beer, and simple syrup. Use the ends of cut fruit to squeeze excess fruit juice into pitcher. Serve chilled. Place in fridge until party time. Enjoy!
Don’t forget to garnish with fresh fruit and mint if you’d like. Otherwise, this simple big patch drink is ready to serve. Depending on how many people you’re entertaining, you can add 2-3 bottles of Rosé in your pitcher. Basically, you can double this recipe as many times as you need. Serve it in a chilled, stemless glass, and with a straw if you’d like. I’d never recommend that you drink wine with a straw but with a drink like this I think it’s perfectly acceptable.
Summer is in full swing and it’s hot. But you can stay refreshed with chilled Rosé Wine Sangria all summer long. For your next outdoor gathering, grab some fresh fruit and a bottle of your favorite Rosé. The juices from the fruit add a special flavor to the wine that you’ll never forget. Enjoy!
