It’s been so hot here this summer. I remember going on vacation to the Okanagan to get these kind of temps as a kid. I’ve been living on our deck with a cold drink in hand.
This has become my new favourite summer cocktail. It’s light refreshing and not too sweet. It’s a hybrid of my two favourite adult beverages margaritas and sangria. And since it’s Friday I’ll be whipping up a pitcher.
This sangria has orange, lime and strawberries. The fruit is soaked in tequila and rosé to infuse the drink with a sweet fruit flavour. I then serve the sangria over ice and top with soda for a hint of fizziness.
What’s you favourite Summer drink?
- 2 bottles of Rosé

Slice strawberries, 1 orange and 1 lime. Place fruit into a pitcher. Add tequila, rosé and the juice of 2 oranges and 2 limes to the fruit. Stir and place in the fridge to infuse for at least 4 hours or overnight.
To serve fill and oversized wine glass with ice. Fill glass with sangria, and top with club soda. Enjoy alone or with chips and guac!
