Strawberry and Peach Rose Sangria

Strawberry and Peach Rosé Sangria

A few years ago one of my besties introduced me to Rosé wine. I was basically hooked in an instant. What’s not to love about drinking pink wine. Especially in the summer. It’s a necessity for any summer soiree. Plus it makes you feel super fabulous when you drink something pink.

I’ve been on a bit of a sangria kick recently. Just a glass of wine doesn’t do it for me at the moment. I think it’s because there is seriously such an abundance of insanely delicious fruit at the markets right now, I feel compelled to throw all sorts of tasty fruit into my drink and then eat it a few hours later when it’s nice and boozy and even better.

Then the sugars from the fruit infused into the wine a bit and makes for an excellent sangria.

I’ve made sangria a time or two on the blog before, and each one of them is as fantastic as the next. This Strawberry and Peach Rosé Sangria happens to be my current fav for many reasons.

1: Rosé wine. We’ve already established that I’m obsessed.

2: Basil. Basil in cocktails is totally my jam. It’s the bread to my butter. The peanut butter to my jelly. The Crate to my Barrel. It just makes sense. Trust me.

3: Peaches. I literally cannot get enough. I’m buying them 5 lbs at a time and going through them like water. They lend well to sweet and savory dishes and I just am going to keep going until we run out of peaches this season.

4: This has absolutely NOTHING to do with sangria, but it’s basically the funniest thing I’ve ever read and it describes me in seriously scary and accurate detail. I can’t stop reading it.

5: Also, this. Just read it and laugh so hard you start to cry. Or run and hide if you have a cat like me.

6: That’s it. The end. It’s all I’ve got for today. Run to the store and grab a few ingredients so you can whip up this Strawberry and Peach Rosé Sangria and enjoy it over this glorious summer weekend!

Happy Friday folks! Love ya
