Grilled Citrus Rosé Sangria

Grilled Citrus Rosé Sangria recipe

TGIF! Who is ready to celebrate the weekend with some great weather, plenty of sunshine, and a great cocktail in their hand.

So let me honest with you guys today. I use to hate rosé wine. I know, I know…how can you hate a great chilled glass of rosé on a summer day? Well let’s just chalk it up to the fact that I was trying to be “different” and refused to give it a try.

So many regrets, but alas I’m making up for it this year! Gimme all the rosé wine that Trader Joe’s carries.

Since I’ve been loading up on a ton of fresh citrus fruit, I decided that what better way to get my vitamin C in and enjoy my glass of rosé than with a delicious rosé sangria. Now this isn’t your typical sangria recipe, although I’m pretty famous for my white sangria recipe from college, it’s got a more minty-smokey flavor profile that seems to pair well with a dry still rosé, all thanks to the grilled citrus fruit juice.

Have you guys ever grilled citrus fruit? If you haven’t, you must give it a try this summer! Honestly, the light caramelization totally changes the way you will eat an orange from this point forward.

This rosé sangria is great to make ahead of time, perfect for a large crowd, and combines a smokey-sweet flavor that’s just perfectly refreshing for this summer season.

So I’d love to know from you guys – what’s your favorite rosé cocktail? Anyone give frosé a shot?

Instructions
  1. If you have a outdoor grill, heat it up on a high setting. If you are using an indoor grill, lightly spray the pan with a neutral oil to prevent sticking. Cut all the fruit into relatively thick slices. You want to make sure they don’t just fall apart on the grill. Lay down your slices on the grill in one even layer, letting the fruit heat up and get that charr on them. The fruit will start to become soft and juicy.
  2. When all your fruit is grilled up, add your grilled slicked lemons and limes to the bottom of your pitcher. Take the grilled oranges slices and juice them, before adding the orange juice to the pitcher.
  3. Next add your mint simple syrup, pineapple juice, vodka into the pitcher. Stir well to make sure everything is mixed up. Next add your bottle of dry still rose (honestly the cheaper the better with this recipe) and mix well. Serve with garnish and enjoy!
