Rosé Sangria with Summer Fruits

Rosé sangria is my summer drink.  It’s light, crisp and enjoyed chilled to combat the heat of summer.  This is a great way to enjoy a less expensive bottle of rosé.  Filled with berries, stone fruit and lemons, it is the ultimate summer sangria.

I look forward to rosé season like most kids look forward to their birthday.   So, you can imagine how unhappy I was when I bought a subpar bottle.  First, let me say it wasn’t terrible.  It just wasn’t as good as I’d hoped it would be.  Not one to waste anything, I immediately knew it would become a sangria.  A little fruit and simple syrup can salvage pretty much any bottle of mediocre wine.  As a matter of fact, I contemplated titling this post “How To Save a Crappy Bottle of Wine”, but I figured that wouldn’t go over very well with some people.

Sangrias are a perfect summer drink because they are lightened up with a little seltzer or even lemon-lime soda.   If you are having a party, it is the perfect drink to serve.  Make a few pitchers and you are done, guests can help themselves and you are free to enjoy yourself instead of playing bartender.   As with most things that I make, use this as a jumping off point for yourself – use Cointreau instead of St. Germain.  Swap out nectarines for cherries or plums, use whatever you have on hand.   Instead of seltzer, you can use soda if you like your sangria on the sweeter side.  

Here are a few summer drinks we’re enjoying right now: 3 ingredient Cherry Coconut Rum Slushies / Blueberry White Wine Spritzer / Fresh Strawberry Daiquiri

Cheers, friends!  It’s summer so let’s sit back, relax and have a glass of something delicious.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 15 minutes
Servings 6


  • 1 bottle dry rosé wine
  • 1/2 cup St Germain Elderflower liqueur
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 liter seltzer water or lemon lime soda
  • 1 lemon thinly sliced
  • 1 cup each: strawberries blueberries, raspberries + extra for garnish in glass (optional)


  • In a small sauce pot, combine sugar and water over medium heat until sugar is completely dissolved. Set aside to cool.
  • In a large pitcher, combine all ingredients except seltzer (or soda) and stir well. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight if possible.
  • Before serving, top with seltzer and stir to combine.


Seltzer water can be plain or flavored. I used raspberry and it was delightful.
Start out with half of the simple syrup and taste sangria. It may be sweet enough for you, depending on the wine you've chosen. Sometimes a 1/4 cup is enough, other times, I've needed the 1/2 cup of syrup.
If St. Germain is hard to find, swap it out for Cointreau or other liqueur. You can also omit entirely, but know that it will not taste the same.
