Weekly Boozer: Cherry Rosé Sangria

In Uncategorized, Weekly Boozer on August 5, 2011 at 9:22 pm

Oh baby it’s hot outside… seriously. It’s hot. Dang hot. Which means really we have mostly been drinking water. Hey, I’m keeping it real! lol. But, sometimes on a summer afternoon nothing is better than a glass of chilled Rosé wine or a crisp and refreshing glass of Sangria. So I figured, why not have both?

Cherry Rosé Sangria

1 bottle of Rosé wine
1 can lemon-lime soda, diet if you like
1/4 cup sugar, more if you like it sweeter
1/2 cup Elderflower Liquor
1/2 cup Triple-Sec Liquor 
1 large orange
1 cup strawberries
2 cups cherries, pitted and halved
(any other fruit you like… peaches, raspberries, etc.)
 

Directions: Wash all the fruit well; slice orange, strawberries and prepare cherries. Place all the fruits in a large pitcher or bowl with sugar; lightly mull. Add Elderflower and Triple-Sec to fruit and let soak for at least one hour, stirring occasionally, or soak for longer if you desire… it only gets better with time!

Once fruit is ready, add bottle of Rosé wine and lemon-lime soda (ginger ale would also be nice!) to the mix and stir. Chill for another 1 to 3 hours (we kept some overnight – twice as nice the second day!!  Mix well before serving. I like to run the sangria through a filter and put the remaining fruit in a separate dish – so people can dish their drink up to their own desire; with or without ice. Plus it makes the sangria crystal clear. Garnish with fresh fruit if desired. Die of cold Rosé refreshment. The End. EO
