Rose Sangria in Jars

At the end of these hot summer days, I love having a cold, crisp glass of rosé. It’s so pretty and refreshing, and when you’re feeling anything but pretty and refreshed cause it’s a sauna outside, rosé is really appealing. And so is Sangria. So a Rosé Sangria is just right, don’t you think?

A few months ago, Emily and Wes hosted a picnic in their backyard and they served sangria in jars. With all the mason jar madness going on in the world, I don’t know why I never thought of putting drinks in jars for a camping trip. You just pack the partially filled jars in your cooler and then top them off with ice at camp. If you drink the sangria on the first night, you can use the jars as your drinking glasses for the rest of your trip. The jars are admittedly heavy and fragile, but they won’t leak and they’re nice to drink out of. Great for glamping.

This Rosé Sangria is spiked with a touch of tequila and some tangy grapefruit juice. Combined with the sweet fruit, it’s a winner. Even if you’re not camping, make this and sip it on your porch.
