Strawberry Rose Sangria

It’s been quite awhile since I have made an adult beverage to share with all of you!! I only have a couple on the blog which is this Pink Champagne Float and this Easy White Sangria. So clearly I need to fix that! And you know me I like things that are easy and tasty so another sangria was perfect. I had to do a couple of rounds to get this drink just right. It was hard work let me tell ya! 😉

With Mother’s Day coming up and summer around the corner (YAY!) I thought a pretty drink would be just the thing! The thing I like most about a sangria is you can change things up to suit your tastes pretty easily.

I made this Strawberry Rose Sangria with a moderate sweetness. I don’t like drinks so sweet it’s like drinking pure sugar but I also don’t like them dry either. Just a happy medium.  🙂 But like I said it’s pretty easy to adjust this recipe to suit your tastes.

About this Strawberry Rose Sangria:

  • You can use a dry rose wine, or even change it up and use a rose champagne and leave out the soda.
  • I used cara cara oranges in this sangria but regular oranges will work fine too. I just like how pretty they are and they are a little sweeter.
  • As with any sangria, you will need to allow a few hours for this to sit and “marinate”. This allows for the fruit to flavor the drink and makes it extra tasty.
  • This will become more pink in color after it sits. I know it looks a little orange in this picture (because it was a fresh batch) but I promise it will be pink/light red from the strawberries after it sits for a little bit.
  • If this is not sweet enough for you feel free to add some sugar. Just stir well to dissolve before adding the fruit.
  • I made this Strawberry Rose Sangria with ginger ale but feel free to use any lemon lime soda or leave it out.  (I like the bubbles)

 

Strawberry Rose Sangria -a refreshing drink that's not too sweet. It's perfect for any occasion!

So, in other news, our spring break is over and the kids are back in school, finally!! I’m a little scared for summer vacation after this past week because it was CRAZY and I think all the things happened.

My daughter that broke her tooth just before Christmas vacation broke it again!

This dentist bill is getting outrageous……….I need more sangria!

My washing machine decided to go on the fritz and dumped an entire load of water on the floor. And not just once but twice! It was a horrible mess. I used every towel in the house and still had to use paper towels to finish the job. And new washing machines are so expensive and we haven’t had luck with Craigslist, ugh!

Strawberry Rose Sangria -a simple and refreshing drink perfect for warm summer days!

I also was a witness to a car accident (I will be thankful on this one and that I wasn’t involved!) I feel sorry for the lady because she hit a policeman so there is no way she can talk her way out of that one! Plus a few other things that made the week an extra long one!

More sangria anyone?!?!

I don’t want to complain, just want to let you guys know that we are normal people and it’s not all pretty princesses and sprinkles here all the time. But we are back on a routine again and that’s what makes my world go round- a solid routine! It’s what keeps me sane, *twitch *twitch.
