Rose Wine Sangria with Lemons and Strawberries

From sangria to spritzers, there are countless ways to use rosé. And honestly, picking one is the hardest part!

Whether prepping for a wedding or hosting a casual backyard BBQ, these rosé cocktails give you a reason to celebrate.

Of course, they’re also ideal for those of us working from home. I may or may not have a rosé French 75 in my hand as we speak!

Insanely Refreshing Rosé Cocktail Recipes to Drink All Summer Long

1. Rosé Sangria

If you need a fruity and pink party drink, look no further! This rosé sangria is one bubbly, refreshing, and crowd-pleasing cocktail.

You’ll combine rosé wine with brandy, sparkling water, and a touch of sugar. And, of course, you can’t have sangria without fruit!

This recipe calls for strawberries, oranges, and lemon, but feel free to add more berries or even peaches for a unique twist!

2. Rosé, Gin & Campari Cocktail

So many great flavors all in one glass – this has “signature cocktail” written all over it!

Not that you need an occasion to make it. It’s just as exciting on your back porch.

The bitterness of Campari and the botanical notes of gin are sweetened with muddled strawberries.

Top it off with rosé wine and garnish with orange or strawberry slices. Yum!

But be warned: this drink will sneak up on you if done right!

3. Sparkling Rosé French 75

The French 75 is usually pretty tart and very strong. So this rosé version is ideal for anyone on the hunt for something light, elegant, and mild.

That said, featuring lemon juice, gin, and simple syrup with ice, it’s still pretty boozy.

Top the whole thing with sparkling rosé, and get ready to fall in love!

4. Pomegranate Rosé Paloma

I love a delicious cocktail – especially when you only need three ingredients and a few minutes to make a batch!

You’ll add a splash of pomegranate juice to the Paloma-standard grapefruit soda and a good amount of sparkling rosé.

If you want it a bit boozier, add silver tequila.

This is a simple twist on a classic Paloma, and I am here for it! Refreshing, cold, and simple drinks are on the menu tonight!

5. Rosé Champagne Cocktail

There’s something so romantic about this champagne cocktail.

So if you have a big anniversary or exciting date coming up, pop the bubbly and get ready to start sipping!

Don’t let the name fool you, though; this cocktail is still made with rosé wine.

You’ll include gin and lemon juice for a refreshing twist. It helps to balance the rose liqueur and rosé flavors.

6. Lavender Lemonade Rosé Cocktails

Okay, this may just take the cake for my new favorite BBQ drink.

Boozy lavender lemonade is as refreshing as it sounds, and it looks stunning to boot.

The floral and citrus notes of lavender and lemonade are already something pretty special.

But add in sparkling water and rosé, and you’re in for a real treat.

Make it for your next girls’ night in, as a signature wedding cocktail, or simply enjoy it on your own.

There’s no shame in indulging in a delicious tart, fresh cocktail after a long day.

7. Rosé Wine Granita

Dare I say it? Boozy slushies are better than anything from the ice cream truck!

One bite of this rosé granita, and you’ll see what I mean.

A fun blend of rosé wine, lemon juice, sugar, and water, it’s as easy as mixing and freezing.

To get that signature texture, you just need to use a fork every 30 minutes to break up the ice. 

Once the drink is slushy and frozen, you’re ready to enjoy it!

8. Frose (Frozen Rosé)

Does it still count as a smoothie if you replace yogurt with rosé? Probably not, but this is too good to miss.

Frozen watermelon and strawberries are used to give this a wonderful slush texture.

Add in a bit of agave, lime juice, and, of course, rosé, and you’re on your way to paradise.

Change up the fruits for different flavors, or sip as the recipe suggests. Either way, it’s cold, sweet, and fantastic.

9. Summer’s Perfect Rosé Spritzer

Spritzers are basically the OG hard seltzers. Sure, they take a bit of work, but they’re worth every second.

And I think they have so much more going on than anything from a can!

Muddled strawberries and lemon slices mixed with two parts rosé and one part club soda.

Not too tricky, right?

If you’re looking for a light and refreshing cocktail, this is the one for you.

It’s as easy as opening a White Claw on a hot day, but you’ll feel even more sophisticated!

10. Elderflower Rosé Spritzer

Here’s one final spritzer to greet the summer season. And this time, it features elderflower liqueur.

Floral and citrus notes from the St Germain liqueur and bright rosé? Sign me up.

Finish it with a splash of fizzy water for a refreshing cocktail you’ll make again and again.
