Rosé sangria

Rose sangria

I’ve never been much of a fan of sangria but my recent holiday in Portugal I’ve really got behind rosé sangria – much lighter, less sweet and perfect by the jugful at lunchtime. I think this is the perfect drink to bring out at a BBQ or summer party. You can even make it with sparkling rosé cava if you’re feeling fancy.

I badgered the barman at my favourite place in Portugal for the ratios he uses so that you and I can make your own.

Watch out for a post with all the details of where we stayed and the places we loved in Portugal in a few weeks.

Rosé Sangria Ingredients

(serves 2-6 people depending on the occasion)

1 bottle chilled rosé (paler is better, cava is even more amazing)

60ml / quarter cup orange liqueur such as Cointreau

1-2 tablespoons brandy

1 really ripe nectarine or peach, torn into chunks so that the juice drips into the jug

1 orange, sliced

Soda water/club soda

To make

Mix everything together, add a wine glass or so of soda water (club soda). Serve chilled with loads of ice. If you like it sweeter, add more nectarines.

Sit back, relax and enjoy it with some of my canapés or a delicious salad. The perfect way to spend a sunny lunchtime.
