Nothing says “summer” like a pitcher of freshly made sangria. Whether you love wine or prefer cocktails, you’re sure to enjoy our favourite sangria recipes.

1. Rosé Sangria with Peaches and Strawberries

Ripe peaches and fresh strawberries star in this refreshing take on rosé sangria. This sangria is best served when mixed ahead of time, making party planning a breeze. Choose a dry rosé wine, such as Quails Gate Rosé, when creating this beverage.

  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1 bottle chilled sparkling wine
  • Fresh mint or rosemary for garnish (optional)

Stir the rosé and fruits in a large pitcher or serving container. Cover the sangria and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. Before serving, top the sangria with sparkling wine and garnish with fruit or herbs.

2. Rosé and Brandy Sangria
If you enjoy a splash of liquor in your sangria, this recipe is for you. Tart raspberries, a hint of brandy, and strawberries make this sangria a real treat. Try this beverage with Cristia Rosé, which brings notes of grapefruit and exotic fruits to the sangria.
