Here is a great summer recipe using one of my favorite wines, a Rose! Try Rosa Regale.


ROSÉ LAVENDER SANGRIA

Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle Rosé wine
  • 1 1/2 cup white cranberry juice
  • 1 bottle club soda (If you like your Sangria or the sweeter side, replace soda by Ginger Ale!)
  • 1 large orange
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 cup raspberries or strawberries
  • Lavender syrup (1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, 2 tbsp dried lavender)

* For the lavender syrup, bring sugar and water to a boil in a saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar. Stir in dried lavender and remove from heat. Let cool completely and strain out lavender. Refrigerate until ready to serve.


Directions:
  1. Make the lavender syrup (see instructions above).
  2. Cut orange and lemon in wedges.
  3. In a large pitcher, combine orange, lemon, wine, juice and half of the lavender syrup. Try it and add more lavender syrup to taste. (You can refrigerate the rest for up to a month).
  4. At this point, you can also add 2-3 shots of gin or triple sec.
  5. Mix everything together and refrigerate until cold. (It gets better the longer it’s macerated!)
  6. Pour mixture on ice and add berries.
  7. Top off with desired amount of soda just before serving!

Makes 1 large pitcher (+/- 6 glasses).
