Sparkling Rosé Sangria
My favorite Mondays end with a cocktail, but why can’t they also begin with one??
Oh yeah, because I have a toddler, and I’m pretty sure it would be considered negligent parenting if I were to consume alcoholic beverages prior to 9am. At least we can start with cocktails on Monday morning in blog land. Isn’t the Internet a wonderful place??
This Sparkling Rosé Sangria is SO good! It’s packed with a fresh strawberry puree, dry rosé wine, a little bit of vodka, and plenty of bubbly sparkling water. It’s effervescent, slightly sweet, but not too sweet, and gosh, I just can’t get enough of it this time of year.
How to make Sparkling Rosé Sangria
- Add water, frozen strawberries and sugar to a medium saucepan. Simmer for 10 minutes and use a potato masher or back of a fork to smash the strawberries. Simmer another 5 minutes and cool completely.
- Push mixture through a fine sieve or strainer, reserve the liquid and toss anything you couldn’t get through the sieve.
- Add strawberry mixture, wine, vodka and sliced strawberries to a large pitcher. Let the mixture sit for at least one hour.
- Just before serving, add sparkling water and raspberries. Serve over ice.
Can this cocktail be made in advance?
YES! In fact, I recommend making it ahead of time for all of the flavors to marry to together and to completely chill it. Just make sure to add the raspberries last so they don’t get mushy.
Substitutions and Tips and Tricks for Recipe Success
- To cool off the strawberry puree quickly, pour in a measuring cup and place in the freezer. Stir every five minutes until completely cold.
- If you don’t want a super strong drink, just leave out the vodka. It will be more like a spritzer and just as delish!
- This would also be lovely with peaches, raspberries, or blueberries.
