Strawberry Rosé Sangria

Thursday, June 30, 2016

I've been feeling all the summer vibes here in Charleston lately. There are always sidewalk sales, trips to the beach, and visitors to entertain.

And if those don't remind you its summer, you've always got the humidity that makes you regret any and all attempts to look nice.

If you follow on Snapchat (HomeSweetRuby) and Instagram you know we've been playing tourist this week, with quite an unforgettable trip to an oyster house last night. I'm just going to leave it at that and let this Instagram photo do the talking... finest parenting moment yet!

There isn't a whole lot you can do to stay cool here besides hibernate in the a/c, so this Rosé Sangria has been on repeat with all of our guests around to help drink it! It might be my favorite sangria yet, with my favorite rosé, sauvignon blanc, a hint of brandy, Sprite, and tons of fruit.


It's super easy to put together and perfect for the Fourth of July. Also I'm slightly obsessed with these acrylic glasses, safe in the wake of a wild toddler!

Expert Sangria Drinker tip: f you're hoping to keep it cold for a party, add frozen strawberries and rosé ice cubes so it doesn't get watered down!


Rosé Sangria

1 bottle of your favorite Rosé
1 bottle of your favorite Sauvignon Blanc
1/3 cup Brandy
1 container of Strawberries
1 Orange
1 Lemon

Combine the fruit, brandy, and both wines in a pitcher. Let this sit for at least an hour. (It will seem really strong as this point, don't freak out!)

When ready to serve, add as much Sprite as you like. This will make it a little bubbly and take away some of that kick from the brandy.

That's it! So easy and perfect for your Fourth of July picnic or hot summer days!


Linking up with Natalie + Annie!
