OJ's Sangria Recipe Is Undefeated

As the sun-kissed days of summer draw near, it's time to explore the lighter side of sangria with my very own sangria recipe. Unlike a traditional sangria, which is made with fruity red wine, mine is made with rose wine. Swapping pink rosé for red wine offers a refreshing twist with lighter hues and crisper flavors. With a medley of ingredients including summer fruits, such as strawberries and blueberries, and Brandy de Jerez from Spain, this sangria wine drink is a delicate alternative to classic red and white sangria variations. Made by the batch, it's the perfect drink for a picnic or early evening dinner party.

Rose Sangria Ingredients

  • 2 Bottles Rose Wine
  • 2 cups Brandy de Jerez
  • 4 Tablespoons Elderflower Syrup
  • 2 Cups Strawberries, Raspberries, and Blueberries
  • 1 Vanilla Bean
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks

How To Make Rose Sangria

  1. Combine vanilla bean, cinnamon sticks, elderflower syrup, and berries in a large pitcher.
  2. Slowly add rose wine and Brandy de Jerez.
  3. Stir gently to mix.
  4. Refrigerate for one hour, or until the pitcher is cold.
  5. Scoop a generous portion of berries into a wine glass, and top with ice.
  6. Pour the chilled sangria into the glass until it's nearly full.
  7. Stir gently, and garnish with a sliced strawberry or a sprig of mint.

I like a dry rosé, but use whatever (inexpensive) pink rosé you prefer. If you don't have access to Brandy de Jerez, substitute grapefruit juice. Letting the sangria sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour allows the flavors to marry, resulting in a harmonious blend of fruit essence, floral notes, and subtle baking spices.

Rose Sangria Riff

Personalize your rose sangria by experimenting with different types of fruit and herbs. Try adding slices of citrus fruits like oranges and pineapples for a sweet twist, or throw in some sprigs of mint or rosemary for an herbal infusion.
