There’s nothing I love more than chilling out on the weekend with the sun shining, my shades on, and a big glass of sangria in my hand. In this case, Rosé Sangria!

Sangria typically consists of red wine, chopped fruit, and oftentimes another liquor. I took inspiration from the classic recipe, used rosé wine, and put a twist on the rest of the ingredients to create this vibrant rosé sangria. It’s one of my favorites.

As you may know, red wine sangria is made with red wine. I don’t think it’s fair to leave the other wine varieties out of the party, so today I’m sharing my recipe for Rosé Sangria.

Ingredients:

  • dry rosé wine – I enjoy a dry rosé here, but if you like your cocktail a bit sweeter, a sweet rose would work too. 
  • limoncello – Brandy or Grand Marnier is traditional here, but I like the bright freshness that the limoncello adds. 
  • raspberries – Fresh fruit is a must for sangria. Raspberries aren’t typical for sangria, but I think they are so wonderful in this recipe. 
  • strawberries – I love strawberries in sangria. Not only do they add to the flavor, but once they soak in the wine, they are delicious to eat! 
  • orange and lemon – Citrus fruit is a must. It’s part of what makes a good sangria.

  • Pour in the limoncello and then the rosé.

  • Serve in a glass with ice garnish and extra fruit if desired.

Recipe Tips and Variations

Let your sangria rest and chill for at least an hour. When using citrus fruit, I recommend not letting it sit for longer than four to five hours because the citrus can overpower the sangria.

I like using a large pitcher for sangria instead of a vessel with a spout. This allows some of the fruit to pour into the glass; plus the fruit tends to clog the spout. 

Variations

  • Use brandy or Grand Marnier. I love the brightness and freshness that limoncello adds to this rose sangria which is different from the traditional brandy or Grand Marnier. It’s what makes this cocktail special. However, feel free to substitute ½ cup of Grand Marnier for the 1 cup of limoncello if desired. 
  • Add bubbles! If you want to add a bit of effervescence to your rosé sangria, top it with some club soda. You could even use sparkling rose instead of traditional rosé.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What makes sangria a sangria? 

Sangria is a punch made of wine, chopped fruit, and sometimes liquor. The type of wine, fruit, and liquor can be adjusted to make different varieties of sangria. 

Is sangria sweet or dry?

Typically sangria tends to be on the sweeter side. That is why I recommend using a dry wine. However, you can adjust the sweetness to your liking. If you want it even sweeter, add a splash of simple syrup. 

Is sangria stronger than wine? 

The addition of liquor does change the alcohol content, but not by much. In terms of flavor, sangria is a bit easier to drink as the fruit and citrus add a bit of sweetness. You can also add a bit of club soda to decrease the strength.

  2. Hahaha! A new reason to love you Michael – Kimmie Schmidt! She would love this Sangria. Have you seen this weeks EW Magazine with her lying on, and discreetly covered by hundreds of airplane size bottles of liquor? A Kimmie Schmidt style American Beauty photo. Too funny.
