Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup raspberries
  • 1 Cup strawberries
  • 1/2 Cup blueberries
  • 3 Meyer lemons
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1 bottle dry rosé
  • 1 Teaspoon rosewater
  • Ice, for serving
  • Sparkling water, for serving

Directions

Wash the fresh raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries. Hull and slice the strawberries.

Juice two of the Meyer lemons, and thinly slice the third.

In a large pitcher, add half of the raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries, along with the lemon juice and sugar. Muddle until completely broken down.

Add half of the dry rosé wine and stir together.

Strain the mixture into a large punch bowl or pitcher, and press the fruit pulp, so you extract all that flavor. Discard the pulp.

Add the remaining fruit to the punch bowl or pitcher, along with the rest of the wine and rosewater. Cover and chill for an hour, or up to a day or two.

Fill your serving glasses with ice, and fill three quarters full with sangria. Top each with sparkling water. Enjoy!

 

Berry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Berry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
