Ingredients for citrus rosé sangria
- Rosé wine – For extra bubbles, try using a sparkling rosé.
- Sugar – This is a necessary ingredient to make sure all of the citrus isn’t too overwhelming! You’ll also want to have some for rimming the glasses.
- Gin – The rule of thumb with buying an liquor is simple – while it doesn’t need to be top shelf, avoid getting the super cheap stuff.
- Seltzer soda water – This will provide a fun amount of bubbles!
Variations to try
This cocktail is pretty classic and delicious as it is. However, if you want to have some fun with it and get creative, here are some delicious ideas!
- Toss in some raspberries, strawberries, or blackberries! Berries are always freshest and juiciest during the summertime, and they’d be perfect alongside all the citrus in this recipe.
- To make this drink even stronger, add an extra shot or two of gin to the pitcher. Just be cautious, as gin is a powerful flavor that can take over pretty quickly. Sneaky, sneaky!
- If you really want to skip the sugar, try a natural sweetener like honey instead. About half a cup of honey should do the trick! Make sure to stir it well.
