Secret Ingredient Rosé Sangria Recipe

Yields: About 6 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes + chilling time

Ingredients

Rosé Wine: 1 bottle (750ml) of your favorite dry rosé

Brandy: 1/2 cup

Fruit:

  • 1 orange, sliced into thin wheels
  • 1 lemon, sliced into thin wheels
  • 1 cup strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1 cup raspberries

Orange Liqueur: 1/4 cup (like Cointreau or Grand Marnier)

Sweetener: 1-2 tablespoons honey or simple syrup (adjust to taste)

Sparkling Water or Soda: 1 cup, chilled (can use lemon-lime soda as well)

Secret Ingredient: 1/4 cup St. Germain elderflower liqueur

Instructions:

  • Combine the base: In a large pitcher, combine the rosé wine, brandy, orange liqueur, and your sweetener of choice.
  • Add the fruit: Gently mix in the orange slices, lemon slices, strawberries, and raspberries.
  • Chill: Cover the pitcher and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow the flavors to blend.
  • The secret touch: Just before serving, stir in the St. Germain elderflower liqueur. This adds a beautiful floral note that makes this sangria special.
  • Top it off: Add the chilled sparkling water or soda to the pitcher.
  • Serve: Pour the sangria over ice-filled glasses. Garnish with additional fruit slices if desired.

Tips:

  • Choose the right rosé: A dry, crisp rosé works best. Look for varieties from France (Provence), Spain, or California.
  • Customize the fruit: Use any seasonal fruits you enjoy. Peaches, plums, blueberries, and blackberries are all delicious additions.
  • Adjust the sweetness: Add more or less sweetener depending on your preference and the sweetness of your rosé wine.
  • Make ahead: This sangria tastes even better when the flavors have had time to meld. You can make it up to a day in advance.
