Rosé Sangria + Mexican Fiesta

Rose Sangria
Sangria, let me count the ways I love you. Red, white, sparking and now rosé. Sangria has a long history in our family. Many moons ago Steph brought red wine sangria to a family BBQ and inadvertently got the women in the family drunk. The men deemed the drink too girly and we were left to our own devices. Since then I’ve been a mad fan of sangria and am grateful when summer brings out the best refreshing drinks in all of us. Last night I brought this sangria to a Yen Mexican fiesta of a feast! Alicia whipped up a batch of her famed guacamole, deliciously fresh pico de gallo, mango salsa and fajitas! There may have been a tequila shot too. -bvox

Rosé Sangria

1 bottle of rosé wine
1/4 cup grand marnier
1/4 cup triple sec
1/4 cup rhubarb syrup (or simple syrup or fruit juice)
Slices of orange, lemon and lime
Strawberries, quartered
Splash of soda or anything bubbly
Note: I like to add nectarines, white peaches and other berries. Grapes are a good addition too.

Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Then pour it into a glass filled with ice and add a splash of soda. Garnish and drink immediately
