Summer is here! Not officially, but it sure feels like it in Texas... I'm a huge fan of wine. I like it all! I love a good cab, but when I'm feeling something sweet and sparkly, I like to make wine even better... Yes, SANGRIA! I love rosé, so that is the base of this drink! I created a clean, healthy blend that you will not want to miss out on making for any outdoor party or for a weekend by the pool! Or on your couch Monday-Thursday, that works too. ;)
1 Bottle of Rosé
Juice of 1 Whole Grapefruit
1 Grapefruit, Sliced
2 Cups of Raspberries
5 TBSP Honey
4 TBSP Water
20 Oz of Club Soda
Optional: Mint Leaves for Garnish, Oranges, Strawberries, Peaches... ALL THE FRUITS
First, put the honey, water & raspberries in a small saucepan. Put the burner on Medium Heat & stir occasionally until the mixture begins to lightly bubble. Set aside and let cool for 5 minutes.
Next, slice up your grapefruit (& any other fruit of your choosing) and put it in your desired container/pitcher. Pour in the Rose, Grapefruit juice, club soda & Raspberry mixture.
Mix everything together with a wooden spoon, and place pitcher in the fridge overnight (If not, least 2 hours. But it tastes better when you let everything sit together for a while!)
