This rosÃ© & limoncello sangria is my new obsession. I just got back from 3 super relaxing days in Barcelona and still have sangria on the brain.
Having been to Barcelona a few times before, I’m only slightly ashamed to say I spent most of my time there doing nothing remotely cultural. Instead I spent my time lying in the sun and eating as much delicious food and drink as possible. My favourite kind of holiday.
I’m ignoring the fact we’re fast heading into autumn (it’s still warm and sunny in London for now, yay!) And still dreaming of summery drinks on roof terraces. This sangria is totally perfect for that.
- I use rosÃ© wine in this because 1. it’s delicious, and 2. as much as I’m red wine’s biggest fan it does not love me back. Instead it enjoys making me embarrassingly drunk and giving me killer hangovers.
You don’t need to use fancy wine for this, I would just suggest staying away from super sweet rosÃ©. A nice crisp dry wine will help make this the perfect refreshing summer drink.
- Limoncello – again because it’s delicious, but also it nicely balances out the sweetness of sangria and gives it a zesty edge
- Fresh fruit – I used strawberries & peaches, but you can feel free to play around with this. Add any fruit you love/ that’s in season.
