Rosé Sangria

Settle in for a citrusy, sweet-tart, super-easy-drinking summer batch cocktail.

When we were dreaming up this recipe, we set some goals: Taste-wise, we wanted to create something fruity, refreshing and delightfully drinkable. Aesthetically, our guiding principle was “pink on pink.” (Why? Why not!) The result is a curated sangria you won’t want to miss. With cranberry, lemon, grapefruit-rose vodka, strawberries, raspberries and orange, it’s got a melange of fruit flavors, but the mix isn’t overwhelming or slapdash. Each fruit and flavor was intentional and, together, they give this cocktail a distinct, delicious taste.

But feel free to play around with the vodka. If grapefruit-rose flavor isn’t your thing, you could try cucumber vodka, watermelon vodka, classic unflavored vodka or whatever strikes your fancy.
