WHO says you can't have sangria all year long?? Some people think it's just a summer beverage and I completely disagree. A prime example: sparkling rosé blood orange sangria!
During these gray, cold winter months, blood oranges are actually at their finest so let's take advantage yes? Yes. Glad you agree 👍🏻.
Let's talk ingredients. First, and most obviously, blood oranges. But specifically fresh blood oranges. The juice of a fresh blood orange makes all the difference!
Second, all the berries in your fridge. Seriously just chuck them in the pitcher. I used strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries because...that's what happened to be sitting in my refrigerator not getting eaten 🤷🏼♀️.
Third, fresh sage leaves. I absolutely love orange and sage together (I even have a sage blood orange fizz cocktail!) so that was a no brainer for me.
Fourth, and most important, the wine. I've discovered I like my sangria with bubbles and I'm currently dreaming of warm, spring days sooooo sparkling rosé. Obviously.
Fifth and finally, some more orange flavors to really up the ante. I used a dry sparkling blood orange soda and a splash of Grand Marnier (Cointreau will also work).
Now, dump. everything in a pitcher, mix, chill, and voila! sparkling rosé blood orange sangria.
