For Wine Club this month, the theme was Sangria… which made me so excited. I am a huge sangria fan! We had the choice to either make our own, or pick up a bottle. I decided to try and make my own recipe, based off a few others I found online… and I loved it! I cheated a little bit because I used a bottle of rosé that won a couple of months ago, but it’s just too delicious. I couldn’t help it! Mine came in second place (totally deserved to win ;)) but second place means it’s really good! Especially for a group of gals who love everything from sweet to dry and all of the inbetween. This would be a perfect drink for your next dinner party with friends, and it’s so beautiful if you put it into a glass pitcher or container!
BERRY ROSÉ SANGRIA
1 bottle rosé/moscato wine (I love and recommend Roscato)
1/4 cup blackberry brandy (I used Arrow brand)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup club soda
1 1/2 cups raspberries
1 1/2 cups quartered strawberries
1 sliced lemon
1 sliced orange
Note: I doubled my recipe to fill up my drink container! I'd recommend doing that if you're serving over 10 people.
Mix the wine, brandy and sugar in a pitcher, stirring to dissolve the sugar, then add the fruit. Refrigerate at least one hour and up to one day. Add the seltzer just before serving.
