This pretty pink Rosé Sangria Sparkler looks gorgeously elaborate, but it’s anything but. Just chop some fruit into a jug with a bottle of pink wine, let the flavors blend together, then add some sparkling mineral water to create a nice, sweet pop. This drink has no added sugar and is light in alcohol, but rich in aroma, color and flavor, making it the perfect party drink.
I love that deep pink wine is all the rage. I still remember that soda pop pink wine of my youth called White Zinfandel. Oh, but rosé wine is much better today. While it’s simply delicious — crisp, aromatic, floral — to be eaten as an aperitif before your meal, it’s also great in mixed drinks, as in this pretty pink sangria, which sparkles with sparkling mineral water. I used pinot noir rosé to provide a deeper, richer color, but you can easily use any rosé wine you prefer. I used nectarines, grapes, cherries, and watermelon as my choice of fruit in this sangria, but you can use other fruits on hand, including watermelon, cantaloupe, peaches, and berries. Your creativity is all you need to get going! cheers!
