Rosé Sangria


Who doesn’t love Rosé wine? Today is National Rosé Day and why not celebrate and enjoy a refreshing mix of both red and white vino?

National Rosé Day is always the second Saturday in June and was actually submitted and approved by the registrar of National Day Calendar in October 2014 by Bodvar, House of Roses.  How cool is that and might I add THANK YOU, especially if it means to sip on a glass of cool refreshing Rosé, than sign me up!

Rosé is amazing all on its own but because summer is officially here, nothing says summer like BBQs, picnics, beach vacations, and sangria! Sangria is my summer time drink not only because it’s light BUT it hits the spot during the summer time heat and unbearable humidity.

Some may not know exactly what sangria is, but may you have seen it and no doubt heard of this drink.  Sangria, is a Spanish alcoholic beverage that usually consists of red or white wine with diced fruits. Plus, sangria also includes additional alcohol like, champagne, brandy or rum along with additional fruit juices like orange juice and pineapple juice.

I like all Sangria, especially gluten-free, and I have tried many flavor combinations and I tend to like the lighter wines like white or Rosé best.  I find the best thing to do is order a red wine version and a white or Rosé combination and share with a group of friends!

Today, I’m sharing my strawberry lemon Rosé Sangria.  Now, there are no rules when making this beverage.  Honestly, choose whatever fruit and additional alcohol combinations you want and by all means have fun!

Strawberry Lemon Rose, Sangria!
