As if you didn't love rosé enough. We’ve gone and loaded it with citrus, spiked it with gin, and then topped it off with a fizzy glug of club soda—meet rosé sangria, your new favorite cocktail.

Rosé By Any Other Name...

...Would be sangria? Or something like that—you get where we’re going. We all love rosé right? Crisp, cold, bone dry and blushing like a sunset, it’s our summertime go-to. Those #yeswayrosé people always referred to rosé as summer water, and we are SO on board with that. But, what’s a rosé fanatic to do when they find themselves craving something a bit more cocktail-like? Make rosé sangria, of course! You might be more familiar with red sangria, which is a classic Spanish summertime drink made typically from red wine, fruit and bubbly water. But you can just as easily make it with white wine, or in this case, rosé.

What’s In Rosé Sangria?

Our rosé sangria plays up the crisp, dry, refreshing nature of rosé by pairing it with clean, botanical gin and bright, zippy citrus fruits. Here’s what you’ll need to make this refreshing, easy sangria recipe:

  • Club soda
  • Citrus fruit. Grapefruits, lemons, and limes.
  • Triple sec.
  • Sugar.
  • Gin! Any gin that you love is fine here.
  • A bottle of rosé. Because of the addition of sugar and triple sec, this sangria has plenty of sweetness, so look for a rosé that is nice and dry, like a lovely pale pink Provençal rosés often tend to be quite dry.

How To Make Rosé Sangria

This rosé sangria recipe is pretty darn easy, but there are a few key things to keep in mind:

  1. Start making it a day ahead of time, if you can! It gets better as it sits and the flavors really meld if you can let it sit overnight. Just be sure to hold off on adding the bubbly water until the last minute, so that the drink is fresh and fizzy.
  2. Sangria is all about the bountiful fruit garnish—consider buying some particularly pretty fruit to garnish the glasses with. If you can find kumquats, blood oranges, or particularly perfect Meyer lemons, they’d all be right at home floating merrily in these glasses of rosé sangria.
