It’s birthday week for yours truly. I’m turning 30 this week but before we can get to the birthday fun I have to address the silent elephant in the room. Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day is one of those polarizing holidays were you either love or hate it. On top of that, you’re either the Valentine’s Day people who brave the restaurants/crowds or you’re the type that stays at home. Personally, I’m staying at home type. So for you fine lovers of the home, this Valentine’s Day cocktail is for you.
Blushing Rosé Sangria has notes of citrus, peach, and strawberries. I use a dry Rosé to keep a balance of sweetness but if you like to keep things sweeter, then feel free to bump up to a sweet Rosé. If you want to make things really bubbly you can use Rosé Champagne for a Rosé Champagne Sangria! This does make enough Rosé Sangria for a crowd so invite of your favorite couples, cut up some strawberry hearts, and get ready to blush over how bright and tasty this drink is.
BLUSHING ROSÉ SANGRIA
Sangria is always a winner because it’s delicious and easy to make. About two hours from serving your Sangria throw the following ingredients into a pitcher.
- 2 cups of Strawberries, sliced in half. (Heart Shaping optional)
- 1 Lemon, sliced.
- 1 Bottle of Dry Rosé
- 2 cups of White Peach Juice
- 1 cup of White Rum
- 1/2 cup of Lemon Juice
- 1/2 cup of Cointreau
Stir it all together until well combined. Let chill in the fridge for 2-4 hours. When ready to service stir in 1-1/2 cups of ginger ale. Serve in a wine glass filled with ice and fruit from the sangria. This yields enough for 8 people. While this is a rum sangria, you could make it a silver tequila sangria or vodka-based sangria. Just keep your spirit clear!

This stuff is dangerously good! I love how bright it is with the addition of lemon and Cointreau. It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day cocktail, though we wouldn’t fault you for making it for bridal showers or just for the heck of it.
