Rose + Strawberry Sangria
What is better in summer than Sangria? I'm always looking for ways to mix it up and create new inventive drinks.  Sangria being one of my classic - easy , go -to drinks, I tend to make it often.  Especially when a group is involved.  This time, I wanted to combine sangria, with two of my favorite components-- strawberry and rose. If you have been following us, you know that whenever there is an opportunity to use rose, I usually will take it and this is one of those moments.   For this recipe, I decided to use a base of a sparkling red wine, otherwise known as Lambrusco. It is a great base for a sangria as it is usually light, slightly sweet and sparkling.  Sangria doesn't always have a sparkle, but I prefer it to be a bit bubbly, as I do with most drinks. So for this recipe, try using a Sparkling Lambrusco, but if your local shop doesn't carry it, a simple table wine or sweet red wine will also work.  I also use a Rose Simple Syrup in this recipe, which you can find the recipe for here.  With any punch or sangria- I always recommend letting it marinate in the fridge in a closed container for at least 20-30 minutes to help the flavor develop.
