Rose Sangria

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.

What is Sangria made of?

Unlike classic sangria made with dark Spanish wine and orange juice, this Rose (Rosé) Sangria Recipe is lighter, with a tangy-sweet finish.

Sangria Recipe Ingredients

And just look at the color! So what’s in it?

So glad you asked…

  • French Rosé Wine – A crisp wine with a light citrus-floral quality.
  • Pink Grapefruit Juice – For its pink color and delicate acidity.
  • Bourbon – This adds some sweetness but also depth, with notes of caramel and vanilla. (P.S. Bourbon and grapefruit juice are meant to be.)
  • Honey – This adds some sweetness and balances out the twang.
  • Chambord – For a bright berry flavor.
  • Watermelon Balls, Strawberries and Raspberries – Fruity pink things are added to the mix to absorb all that boozy goodness.

How To Make Sangria

This rose sangria recipe is a little bolder than traditional sangria, however, you will not believe the depth and intrigue it provides.

  1. Use a melon baller to scoop watermelon balls out of a large slice of fresh watermelon. Slice the strawberries.
  2. 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 then refrigerate sangria.
  3. 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.

Soaking the Fruit

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.

Make This Sangria Recipe Ahead Of Time

This is a wonderful recipe to make ahead of time. That’s because it requires the fruit to soak in the liquid for at least two hours. The longer it soaks the boozier the fruit gets. So you can soak them for a couple more hours or even overnight!

In fact, Sangria can last in the fridge for up to three days. Be careful though because the fruit could start to go bad. So remember to make sure to use fresh fruit!

Sangria Substitutions

If grapefruit juice isn’t your thing, orange juice would be the next best option.

What you’re looking for here is the acidity that grapefruit brings to the mix of liquids. You might not get that perfect pink color but it’s still going to taste great!

  3. I love sangria – especially in the summer time! I can’t wait to try your simple recipe. My standby has like a million ingredients and so much alcohol you’re staggering around after one glass. And since I would like to enjoy more than one glass…this recipe seems much more appealing!
