Rosé Sangria

Rosé wine is made from red wine grapes, but it has a nice pink color because the fermenting time with grape skins is reduced. Although it’s made from red wine grapes, it has a lighter and more delicate flavor than red wine. This Rosé Sangria has a much lighter flavor than the original Spanish Sangria, and it’s perfect for long summer days. 

The Ingredients For Rosé Sangria

  • 1 bottle of your favorite Rosé wine

  • ½ cup of your favorite Brandy

  • 1 cup of strawberries

  • 1 cup of raspberries

  • 2 cups lemon/lime soda

  • 1 grapefruit

  • 1 lemon

  • 2 oranges ( for garnish)

How To Make Rosé Sangria?

First, take out your pitcher, and pour the brandy into it. Squeeze the grapefruit and lemon, and add the freshly squeezed juice to the pitcher. Add the strawberries, raspberries, and the Rosé wine. Place the pitcher in the fridge for at least one hour. Add the soda and the sliced oranges once the mixture is cooled. Serve it with some ice, and enjoy!

White Wine Sangria

White wine has been around for at least 4000 years, and it’s fermented without skin contact. White wine is generally sweeter than red wine, making it the perfect addition to summer cocktails. This white wine sangria will become your go-to drink if you’re a white wine lover.

The Ingredients For White Wine Sangria

  • 1 bottle of your favorite white wine

  • ¼ cup of brandy

  • 1 cup of sparkling water

  • 1 cup strawberries

  • 1 mango

  • 1 peach

  • 1 apple

  • 1 orange

  • 1 lime

First, slice the strawberries, mango, peach, apple, orange, and lime. Once everything is sliced, place them in a big bowl, add the sugar and brandy and refrigerate it for at least 1 hour. 

Grab a pitcher, and add the sliced fruits. Add the sparkling water and pour a full bottle of your favorite white wine. Mix everything well and place the pitcher in the fridge again. Refrigerate for one hour, and serve!
