This past weekend was Memorial Day in the USA which is typically celebrated by gathering with friends and barbequing. In the Fall season, I typically bring a jug of Autumn Sangria with me to such gatherings. But since the weather is warmer, I thought I’d try something a bit lighter and more refreshing.
I experimented a bit and found the perfect combination for making a sparkling summer sangria. It’s so simple I don’t know if I’d even call it a recipe. It’s just a little rose sweetened by some lemon lime soda and fruit. You can adjust the amount of rose vs soda depending on how sweet or strong you like your beverage.
A refreshing cocktail to mix for your next outdoor get-together.
- 1 bottle Pinot Noir Rose
- 1/2 litter Sprite or other lemon/lime soda
- 3 lemons, sliced
- 1 pine of strawberries, sliced
- Fill a glass pitcher half way with ice, then add the lemons and strawberries.
- Pour bottle of rose over ice, then add the soda.
- Stir, then serve!
