I’ve never been much of a fan of sangria but my recent holiday in Portugal I’ve really got behind rosé sangria – much lighter, less sweet and perfect by the jugful at lunchtime. I think this is the perfect drink to bring out at a BBQ or summer party. You can even make it with sparkling rosé cava if you’re feeling fancy.
I badgered the barman at my favourite place in Portugal for the ratios he uses so that you and I can make your own.
If you’re heading to Portugal, here is my google map where I’ve saved the places we love.
Rosé Sangria Ingredients
(serves 2-6 people depending on the occasion)
1 bottle chilled rosé (paler is better, cava is even more amazing)
60ml / quarter cup orange liqueur such as Cointreau
1-2 tablespoons brandy
1 really ripe nectarine or peach, torn into chunks so that the juice drips into the jug
1 orange, sliced
Soda water/club soda
How to make rose sangria
Mix everything together, add a wine glass or so of soda water (club soda). Serve chilled with loads of ice. If you like it sweeter, add more nectarines.
