It’s officially summer and fruity, refreshing drinks are in full swing!
I think this is my 3rd or 4th sangria recipe and I feel like they are getting better and better each time.
Everyone just keep asking me to make more sangria since the first time I made it and so… here you go!
There’s just something about summer that screams, “light, refreshing, and fruity” and then in the winter it is the total opposite. I just want to have red wine and dark beer.
Except when I lived in Florida when it is perpetual summer then I can drink just about anything at any time – though I tend to stick to light stuff and stay away from the heavy stuff.
It’s nice to have an ebb and flow of seasons here… but, like I’ve said previously, I won’t be able to handle it for the rest of my life.
Thank goodness that we will only be here for 2 more years.
Yikes. Saying that actually scares me a little bit. Time is going by so fast and before I know it I will be having to pack up and move, more than likely, across the country again.
I’m excited for the adventure that we are on, I just don’t like packing and moving… but then again, who does?
Anyway, back to this gorgeous Strawberry Rosé Sangria.
I made this particular sangria a few weeks back for a little BBQ we were having and it was a hit.
But I actually went and bought all the ingredients again to make more tonight for the 4th of July celebration we are having. It’s red-ish so it counts!
My mom is still in town and she loves sangria so I know that she will love this recipe and so will you!
Enjoy and Happy 4th of July!
