Try the Trend: Rosé Sangria

We turned to some of our favorite bloggers to uncover party-perfect Rosé sangria recipes. Mixing up a batch is an easy way to entertain because you can make it just before your guests arrive (wait to add the sparkling water or sparkling wine until it’s time to serve). It’s as beautiful to look at as it is fun to drink. Most start with Rosé and flavorful spring or summer fruit (fresh, frozen or puréed) and then may also include a touch of the following: liqueur, brandy, sugar and sparkling water or club soda. Easy, right? 
Better yet, a number of superb Rosés handpicked by our Master Sommelier and team are on sale from 4/4 – 5/29/18* and just right for sangria — like El Terrano Rosado and Camino Calixo Cava Brut Rosé. 
Raspberry Rosé Sangria
This straightforward recipe highlights fresh raspberries and lemon, with the option to punch up the berry flavor with a homemade raspberry simple syrup (yes, please!). Leslie Haasch, the blogger behind Stress Baking, offers handy tips to achieve the perfect sweetness level in her recipe, and she recommends trying a few batches if you have time before a big party. 
Rosé Sangria with Peaches
Already dreaming about summer’s stone fruits? Then earmark this recipe for peach season so you can enjoy peach two ways — fresh peaches and peach liqueur — paired with fresh strawberries. This sangria boasts great body with the addition of a fresh fruit purée. Tip: Look online for DIY peach liqueur recipes that don't use artificial flavors or colors.
Strawberry Plum Rosé Sangria 
This may be the crowning cocktail of summertime starring tart plums, sweet strawberries and fresh cherries. A splash of Chambord liqueur adds additional color and sweetness. 
Frozen Watermelon Rosé Sangria Slushies 
Frozen watermelon and raspberries make this way more exciting than the convenience store slushies of your youth (and the splash of vodka or tequila doesn’t hurt either). Honey and fresh lime brighten up this frozen crowd pleaser with refreshing simplicity. 
Pineapple Rosé Sangria
This tangy take on sangria from Julia Muller, the blogger and recipe developer behind The Roasted Root, lets pineapple shine two ways — with fresh chopped pineapple and pineapple juice. Toss in fresh whole berries for a refreshing, sweet springtime addition.
