Strawberry Sangria

warm air, sunshine, light breeze... spring is in full bloom and what better way to celebrate then to be outside enjoying the sunshine and a cold refreshing drink?

this weekend marks the first weekend of spring and i plan on celebrating with a few girls, lawn chairs, good music, magazines and some cocktails...

follow this fantastic recipe for strawberry sangria!

what you will need...
  • 1 Bottle (750 ml) of Rosé wine (to keep to the Spanish origins of Sangrias you may opt for a Rosé from Spain, a Rosado)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups strawberry lemonade
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries (may use frozen strawberries in a pinch)
  • 2 cups ginger ale 
how you will make it...

    Pour wine in the pitcher and add sliced strawberries.
    Next add sugar, strawberry lemonade and stir gently.   
    Add ginger ale and ice just before serving.
    If you'd like to serve your Sangria right away, use chilled white wine and chilled ginger ale
