Strawberry Sangria

If you are looking for a simple drink to serve on those hot summer nights, this recipe is for you. Sweeter than the average sangria, but still providing a tart kick, it was a delicious and refreshing way to slide into the evening. This really is a great recipe to showcase those local strawberries that are abundant in our area as we speak!

one bottle of rose
1/2 cup sugar
1 lemon, sliced
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
2 cups Vernors ginger ale

In a large pitcher mix the wine, sugar, lemon, and strawberries. Refrigerate for several hours, up to one day. Add Vernors just before serving over ice.


  1. Looks like you are getting ready for the future Beverage Throwdown!!!! I guess I had better do some investigating! The sangria looks so pretty!

  2. That blue tile countertop really makes for a nice backdrop. The contrasting colors refresh the eyes. I think I need a drink.
