The Food Matters Project: Raspberry Rosé Sangria

Total Shares 47

It’s Food Matters Project Monday and this week, Jennifer from Simple and Amazing chose Raspberry Cabernet Sorbet (page 576). It’s a neat twist on a frozen dessert, combining wine, berries, tofu and a touch of sugar to produce a quick and easy sorbet.

See, I have this thing with wine, where I like (really like, like love) to drink it and frankly, the thought of adulterating a nice bottle of Cabernet by adding tofu and fruit and then freezing it, just creeped me out. However, this recipe did get me thinking about new flavor combos and inspired me to conjure up another Sangria recipe.

I saw a bottle of Rosé on sale at PCC Natural Markets and the description caught my eye.

“Ontañon “Mediel” Rosado Navarra — $8

From Ontañon’s Navarra vineyards that surf the frontier between Rioja and Navarra, this spicy, juicy blend of tempranillo and garnacha serves up bright notes of dusty cherry fruit that deepens to dark raspberry tones splashed with savory hints. Don’t be fooled, there’s WAY more wine here than the humble price would suggest!”

I immediately grabbed a bottle and knew that I was going to create a fun summery Sangria inspired by Bittman’s Sorbet. This Sangria is meant to be served fresh and doesn’t need hours to marinate. The speed and ease makes it great for serving impromptu guests or as a last-minute addition to your dinner menu. Or afternoon reading menu. Or sitting on the porch because it’s summer menu. Or any menu…. You get the point.

Bottom line- It’s good, easy and can be made last minute. You probably have the rest of the ingredients in your house already. Make some!

I chose to leave out liquor for this version, but if you have Blackberry Brandy on hand, I think it would be wonderful with an added 1/4 cup to the mix.

I have a feeling there are some interesting sorbet recipes floating around on The Food Matters Project members blogs. Click here to check it out!

    This looks amazing!!! I love the raspberry, peach and lemon combo. Another one I’m going to have to wait until summer in Australia to make!

      I agree Eileen – good Roses used to be so much more $$$. It’s great to see a great selection at great prices.

    I love sangria and this recipe sounds great! I’ve never heard of palm sugar before though, could I sub in regular sugar or is it found at most grocery stores?

    • EverydayMaven says

      Hi Cassandra, I use Coconut Palm Sugar as my normal kitchen sugar. It is fabulous. Low on the Glycemic Index, unrefined and has a caramel taste to it. If you can’t find it, just use your normal sugar or sweetener. :)
