Tools You'll Need

  • Large pitcher
  • Knife and cutting board
  • Measuring cups
  • Stirring spoon
  • Glasses for serving
  • Ice cube trays (if making ice)
  • Pro Tips To Help You Out

    • Chill Time: Letting the sangria chill for at least 2-4 hours (or overnight) allows the flavors to meld together, making the drink more flavorful and refreshing.
    • Frozen Fruit: Use some frozen fruit instead of ice cubes to keep the sangria cold without diluting the flavor.
    • Adjust Sweetness: If you prefer a sweeter drink, add a bit more elderflower liqueur or a touch of simple syrup to taste.
    • Garnishing: Edible flowers not only look beautiful but also add a subtle floral note. Ensure they are food-safe and pesticide-free.
    • Sparkling Twist: For a bubbly version, top off each glass with a splash of soda water or sparkling wine just before serving.

    By following these tips and using the right tools, you'll be able to create a refreshing and elegant Rosé Sangria with Elderflower Spritz that's perfect for any summer occasion. Cheers!
