Summertime Sangria

Our local co-op sells Minervois rosé for the bargain price of €1.30 a liter.
We enjoy its thirst-quenching, refreshing qualities all summer long, and like to do all we can to support our local vignerons!

Husband recently decided that we should try to make Sangria with rosé instead of red so I happily mixed up this concoction late this morning and left it to sit and infuse in the fridge for a few hours. At lunchtime we poured ourselves a couple of icy cold glasses to taste.
What a wonderful flavor!
Tangy, not too sweet, invigorating and delicious. I'm so happy with the results!

Loulou's Summertime Sangria
  • 1 bottle of dry rosé
  • 1/4 cup Cognac* or brandy
  • 2 lemons, cut into pieces
  • 1 orange, cut into pieces
  • 3-5 tablespoons sugar
Put all of the ingredients in a large pitcher and stir until the sugar dissolves. Taste and add more sugar if you like your Sangria a bit sweeter.
Leave in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight to allow the flavors to blend.
Serve over ice.
