A blushing Rose Sangria Recipe for summer parties! Light, lively, and PINK.
Sangria happens to be high on my list of favorites things to sip. This isn’t the first sangria recipe I’ve shared with you, and I’m sure it won’t be the last.
However, I do feel it’s a special sangria recipe and worth trying at your earliest convenience. Unlike classic sangria made with dark Spanish wine and orange juice, this Rose (Rosé) Sangria Recipe is lighter, with a tangy-sweet finish.
And just look at the color!
So what’s in it? So glad you asked…
How To Make The Best Rose Sangria Recipe
Start with a bottle of French Rosé Wine; a crisp wine with a light citrus-floral quality. Then add pink grapefruit juice for intense acidity, and bourbon for sweetness and depth.
P.S. Bourbon and grapefruit juice are meant to be.
Chambord is added to introduce a bright berry flavor, then stir in honey to balance out the twang.
The rose sangria recipe base is a little bolder than traditional sangria, however you will not believe the depth and intrigue it provides.
As if that weren’t enough…
Fruity pink things are added to the mix to absorb all that boozy goodness.
Fresh watermelon, strawberries, and raspberries soak in the Rosé Sangria Recipe until the base is sweet, and the fruit is fully loaded.
Then stir and sip. Once you reach the bottom of the glass, a little gift is waiting for you… Irresistible boozy watermelon and berries to nibble one at a time.
Friends, this Rose Sangria Recipe is a winner.
This summer pour your loved ones a tall one. They deserve it!

Rose Sangria Recipe
- 750 ml French Rosé Wine (1 bottle)
- 1 cup pink grapefruit juice
- 3/4 cup bourbon
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup Chambord (raspberry liqueur)
- 2 cups watermelon balls
- 1 1/2 cups fresh sliced strawberries
- 6 ounces fresh raspberries
Use a melon baller to scoop 2 cups of watermelon balls out of a large slice of fresh watermelon. Slice the strawberries.
Pour the rosé wine, grapefruit juice, bourbon, honey and Chambord in a large pitcher. Stir until the honey dissolves into the mixture. (If your honey is especially thick, warm it first to thin it out before adding.) Then add the watermelon balls and strawberries. Cover the refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
- After at least two hours, stir and taste for sweetness. If you like your sangria on the sweeter side, stir in a little more honey. If the sangria is too strong, plan to pour it over ice. When ready to serve stir in the fresh raspberries and pour into glasses.
