To me, summer is synonymous with sangria. After all, I can think of few things better than a refreshing cocktail on a hot summer day- especially when it comes with a built in snack.
This MDW, your favorite bevi gets an upgrade. We're swapping the standard white or red for rosé and apples and oranges for watermelon and blueberries. Watermelon juice keeps it relatively low in sugar and added calories so you can keep your buzz on headache-free.
What you'll need:
1 750 ml bottle dry rosé
3c watermelon + its juice
3/4c elderflower liquor (we like St. Germain)
1 pint ripe blueberries
1-2 nectarines, sliced
A handful of fresh mint leaves (optional/ not optional)
Combine rosé, St. Germain, watermelon + juice, blueberries and nectarines. For best results, let it mingle overnight. Garnish with fresh mint and serve chilled over ice.
