Why it Works
This recipe is perfect for a warm day in Spring or Summer when you need a refreshing glass to keep you cool. This drink was originally made for the French Garden Party Wedding Shower I threw for my sister. I wanted something we could throw into a big drink dispenser, mix, and have ready to go. I didn’t want anything complicated. And I wanted to make sure it would be an easy crowd-pleaser. Sometimes I have to remind myself that not everything has to be complicated. And when you’re throwing a party, sometimes you need something easy that won’t take up too much of your time as you prep.
Just a few simple ingredients and a few minutes of pouring and mixing and you’re good to go!
These ingredients are super simple and easily doubled or tripled!
- Lemonade: Now we used a big container for the party. One of regular lemonade and one of strawberry lemonade. You can do a mixture or just pick one! I loved the mixture and would recommend it to anyone. You also can use sparkling lemonade for a fun twist, which is what I have pictured above.
- Rosé: Just a reminder that for sangria, you do not want/need the fanciest of wines. You want something that is cheap since you’re just added juices to it. However, for this sangria we aren’t adding too much to it, so you can go with a nicer, but still inexpensive brand.
- Fruit: I used lemons and strawberries for this version. But depending on the notes in your rosé you may choose to add fruits whose notes are found in the wine. Rosés sometimes have other berries, watermelon, etc. Any could be good additions.
How to Make Rosé Lemonade Sangria
Just a few simple steps and you’ll have a delicious drink!
- Add rose into the pitcher.
- Add in lemonade and mix.
- Add in the fruit.
- Lastly, add a bit of ice, mix, and let rest until ready to be enjoyed.
Yes! Each sangria recipe varies so much based on the alcohol and fruit used. But something with berries, watermelon, or florally is great with a rosé wine. With white wine, you might see something similar or even something with apples or other pome fruits. Red wines you usually see paired with apples and oranges.
Usually for about 8 hours is best. You can do a minimum of one hour, but you’ll notice that the wine is still coming through very strongly. For this recipe, you can drink it immediately without too much of the inexpensive wine taste. If you can make it the night before or the morning of the time you plan on serving it, that will help the flavors incorporate better.
Yes, you can. I highly recommend drinking this recipe over ice to be super refreshing. But you can also enjoy ice in your rose or white wine. If you enjoy it a certain way, then that is the right way.
Since sangria has fresh fruit in it, it should be enjoyed in about 4-5 days before the fruit starts to go bad, keep a close eye on it. But you can keep it sealed in a container in the fridge to be enjoyed later. I would suggest not adding sparkling water however until you plan on drinking it however so the carbonation doesn’t go flat or potentially mess with your jar.
Yes, you don’t want any drink or food made with fruit to sit out for too long. If you are making this before an event, let it sit in the refrigerator to come together. And if you have leftovers, you can store it in the refrigerator as well.
