Summer Rose SangritaPosted: June 9, 2012
Traditionally, I love having red wine sangria in the summer as an alternative to dry reds that go well with the colder seasons. On a recent trip to the beach in Montauk, I discovered a great alternative using rose at Navy Beach, and immediately had to recreate it at home. In addition to rose, this recipe uses St. Germain, a sweet elderflower liqueur from France. Be warned however, that using too much can overpower the drink, so add it gradually until it is to your liking. For the fruit, I used grapes and peaches like they served in the restaurant, but you can vary the fruit additions based on what you have available.
1 bottle of inexpensive rose
1 cup red seedless grapes
1/2 cup diced peaches, canned or fresh
4 oz St. Germain liqueur
Combine all ingredients in a pitcher and chill overnight. You may top individual glasses with St. Germain before serving. Enjoy poolside on a hot summer day, or in my case, after a long at the office.
