This refreshing and light Rosé Rooibos Summer Sangria combines Rosé with African Autumn Rooibos Tea for a flavor infused sangria everyone will love! Recipe developed in partnership with Harney & Son’s Fine Teas.
Get excited!!! This Sangria is going to rock your world. In all the best ways possible, of course. Dare I say this may be my favorite Sangria recipe I’ve ever made. That is a TALL proclamation because Sangria is my jam and I am known in more than a few circles for some kick-ass Sangria recipes.
This Rosé Rooibos Summer Sangria is easy, there is no added liquor (what?) and it can be served within an hour or so of making it.
I used Harney & Sons African Autumn Rooibos Tea to cut the Rosé. The subtle citrus and cranberry flavor adds a layer of complex flavor but doesn’t overwhelm the Rosé wine.
When I tested this Sangria with added Cointreau, it just weighed it down. Even though I usually add some type of liquor to Sangria and truth be told, it was hard not to but this recipe just doesn’t need it.
Add in some fresh strawberries, oranges and lime and serve with a sprig of spearmint and watch disappear!
- I used my Brew-In-Mug Extra Fine Tea Infuser. Here are more options!
- I highly recommend using organic sugar and not palm sugar or some other type of sweetener. I tried a bunch and not only was flavor was really impacted (negatively) but the color changed to a muddy dark color instead of this beautiful ruby red!
- Definitely try to buy organic fruit since the rinds and flesh will be submerged in the drink.
- Do not leave the fruit in the sangria for more than 6 to 8 hours (tops!). If you want it to sit longer or you have leftovers, strain the fruit and keep it in a separate container for serving or it will become too acidic and change the delicate flavor.
