Rose Sangria

I can make something up about sangria to make myself sound fancy but really I just enjoy drinking it and rose is my type of favorite wine. I put the two together and created this recipe. It is lightly sweet and will creep up on you so please drink responsibly.

Serving size: 6 (5oz servings)

Active time: 5 minutes

Inactive time: 2-12 hours

Ingredients: 

1 750mL Ryder Pinot Noir Rose

1 C. Apple E&J Brandy

1 C. Chambrod (raspberry liqueur)

2 C. orange juice

Diced fruit (I used Bosc pears)

Procedure:

1. In a large pitcher add the rose, brandy, Chambrod, and orange juice. Stir to mix everything together.

2. Add the diced fruit and chill in the refrigerator covered for 2-12 hours.

3. When the sangria is chilled and ready to be served, fill a glass with ice, add sangria, scoop some of the fruit to add to your glass, and top with sparkling water. Enjoy!

Notes and Variations:

  • White or red wine can be substituted for the rose.
  • If you don’t have apple brandy non-flavored brandy can be used.
  • The Chambrod can be substituted for another fruit flavor liqueur such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier.
  • The sangria should be finished within 24 hours due to the fresh fruit.
  • While the sparkling water is optional it lightens up the sangria and makes it very refreshing.
  • Any fruit that you have can be used.
  • C=cups (liquid)
