Summer has officially started for you or you are patiently waiting a few more weeks to end the daily routine of school mornings, packing lunches and evenings filled with homework. We are so close to the end but pretending it is already summer and enjoying the freshest and most flavorful Summer Rosé Sangria poolside. This cocktail is going to be on repeat all summer because I am loving the refreshing fruit filled flavor of the rosé and also snacking on the marinated fruit slices.
Rosé-choose your favorite bottle of Rosé and one that is on the lighter side and not too sweet.
St. Germain- A light and floral elderflower liqueur pairs perfectly with rosé and a great addition to spring and summer cocktails.
Stone Fruit-Cherries, nectarines and apricots are a few of my favorite summer stone fruits that pair perfectly with rosé. Feel free to add in other stone fruits that you love, such as peaches, plums and mangoes.
Lemons- Lemon slices and a dash of lemon juice adds the perfect amount of citrus paired with stone fruit and the sweet flavors of rosé wine but you could also substitute the lemon for orange slices!
Sparkling Water- The final touch, sparkling water is added at the very end to each individual glass for a bubbly finish.
- Add The Fruit In a large pitcher, add the pitted cherries, sliced nectarines, sliced apricots and sliced lemons
- Add the St. Germain Liqueur Pour the St. Germain Elderberry Liqueur and lemon juice over the sliced fresh fruit
- Add the Rosé Pour the bottle of rosé into the pitcher and allow the fruit to infuse for one hour before serving

This Summer Rosé Sangria can last in the refrigerator for up to three days, but make sure to add the sparkling water into the individual glasses right before you are ready to serve for a little extra bubble!
