Ciao! As you know, we have a new addition to our Joseph’s wine selection. We recently added the David Loftus Rosé. It a beautiful Italian-style rosé. It has notes of strawberry and vanilla, and it’s the perfect flavor for our new La Fortezza Rosé Sangria recipe. Since we will be opening our brand new pool, we thought a lovely Sangria cocktail would be an amazing idea for our guests to enjoy while lounging at the pool. Our daughter, Alex, came up with the idea. The recipe is adapted from a recipe in Blackberry Magazine. We love it.
La Fortezza Poolside Sangria
You will need:
– 1 750mL bottle of David Loftus Rosé (you can use a good quality Italian Rosé)
– ¼ cup blood orange or orange juice
– 1 cups of Club soda
– Garnishes: orange and lemon slices, sliced strawberries and springs of fresh rosemary from our garden.
Combine Rosé, and blood orange juice and strawberries in a large pitcher and stir.
Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
Add ice all the way to the top of the pitcher and wedge in citrus slices and rosemary at desired spots.
Prior to serving, top with club soda for added fizz.
