Strawberry Rosemary White Wine Sangria

There is nothing like a glass of cold sangria on a hot summer day. And although I love the recipes that have plenty of fruit and other ingredients and take a few hours to blend flavors, sometimes you just need something quick.

I love this recipe. Not only did it make good use of the absolutely delicious strawberries we picked last week, but I was also able to use some of the gorgeous rosemary growing in my herb garden. And not only is this tasty, it's extremely quick to make! So now you have the perfect quick little drink to offer guests this summer.

You can make this recipe with whatever white wine tickles your fancy. Here I used Pinot Grigio, but you can also use Sauvignon Blanc or Moscato if sweet is your thing.

Strawberry Rosemary Sangria
Makes 1 drink

5-7 strawberries
1" sprig of fresh rosemary
2 tsp St. Germaine liquer
4 ounces Pinot Grigio
Club soda & ice

Muddle 5-7 strawberries and the rosemary in the bottom of a cocktail glass. Add St. Germaine to the muddled mixture. Fill glass with ice and pour Pinot Grigio into glass. Top up with club soda. If you're feeling fancy, garnish with another sprig of rosemary and sliced strawberries. Serve and enjoy!

St. Germaine liquer is elderflower?

This sounds a lovely recipe. Must make it with some of the strawbs from my garden. :)

Yes, St. Germaine is a lovely elderflower liquer. You could do without it, but it really does provide another very delicious layer of flavor.
