This is the wine lover's answer to the strawberry daiquiri. The strawberry sangria is an easy recipe that combines a favorite fruit of summer with one of the season's most requested wines. It is fantastic and will make an excellent addition to any summer party.
Rosé is the wine of choice for the strawberry sangria and it is the perfect summer wine. Many Rosés tend to have strawberry notes, which is more than ideal for our recipe. Also, to keep to the Spanish origins of sangrias you may opt for a Rosé from Spain, which is referred to as a Rosado locally.
1 (750-milliliter) bottle rosé wine
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups strawberry lemonade
1 cup strawberries, sliced
2 cups ginger ale
Pour the wine into a pitcher and add sliced strawberries.
Add sugar and strawberry lemonade and stir gently.
Add ginger ale and ice just before serving.
If you'd like to serve your Sangria right away, use chilled white wine and chilled ginger ale. Serve it with plenty of ice.
- While fresh strawberries are best, frozen strawberries will work in a pinch.
Make Your Own Strawberry Lemonade
Sure, you can buy strawberry lemonade at the store, but why? If you've already picked up a box of strawberries you're halfway there. Also, your Strawberry Sangria will be ten times better if you take the time to make this simple ingredient.
Making your own Strawberry Lemonade is very easy and it should take just a few minutes. To get the 1 1/2 cups needed for the Sangria, simply double this fresh strawberry lemonade recipe (or make more and enjoy an afternoon drink). The only additional ingredients you will need are a couple of lemons and simple syrup.
Again, the syrup is very easy to make. You can even use the remainder to replace the sugar in the Sangria recipe (there's no need to dissolve syrup).
All of this effort will be worth it because you will have created the freshest Strawberry Sangria possible. Enjoying and sharing the fresh fruits of the season is, after all, one of the joys of summer (save the conveniences for the dead of winter).
