Rose Sangria

Everyone loves Sangria, but made traditionally with red wine, it’s just too heavy for a summer party. Rose is much lighter and fruitier and a big pitcher of this is the perfect beverage for a crowd. Serve with tiny forks to fish out the delicious wine-soaked fruit.

Ingredients

2 bottles (750 ml each) rose wine

1/2 cup superfine sugar

1/4 cup brandy

3 large ripe peaches, sliced

2 small navel oranges, sliced

1 pint fresh raspberries

Instructions

  1. Mix wine, sugar and brandy in a large pitcher, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Add the peaches, oranges and raspberries. Gently mashing some of the fruit with a wooden spoon to extract juices.
  3. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to 1 day.
  4. Serve in ice filled glasses.

Notes

Chill Time: 2 hours

It’s not necessary to buy an expensive rose for this recipe. The fruit adds so much flavor that an inexpensive bottle will be just fine.

Making this a day ahead has the added bonus of the raspberries coloring the sangria a beautiful darker pink.
