Sangria rosata con arance e melagrana
Rosé sangria with oranges and pomegranate Our original home cooking
This sangria is made with rosé wine. I worked on this recipe of mine during Holiday Season when you can easily find pomegranates and oranges. I love this pairing and I find that this sangria with winter fruit and a full-bodied rosé wine is unique, fabulously good! Among other things, it has a very inviting color, hasn't it?

Recipe for sangria with rosé wine, pomegranade and oranges
- - Prepare the pomegranate.
Remove the outer peel and extract all its seeds.
The operation may be quite long. Act over a plate to recover its juice too, eventually.
- - Prepare the orange.
Wash and pat dry with kitchen paper.
Cut into slices with all its peel.
- - Put sugar and cognac into a large carafe.
Stir very well to melt the sugar.
Now add all the fruit and eventually pomegranade juice too.
- - Stir very well.
- - Pour in the rosé wine too.
- - Stir well and preserve, covered, in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours.
Just before serving
- - Even in this case, my husband and I decided to serve the sangria with all its fruits without filtering.
In fact orange slices are great to eat as long as you use organic products.
- - Remove from the refrigerator at least a quarter of an hour before serving. Okay cool but not cold!
- - You should prepare this sangria the day ahead.
- - Since this rosé sangria is alcoholic, it would be appropriate your guests can have cold tonic water to dilute it, if desired.
- - Choose a full-bodied rosé wine such as those obtained from vine negramaro (Salento - Apulia).
- - This sangria made with rosé wine is perfect for your invitations during Holiday Season. Serve it in a meal, buffet-style or at a seated dinner to pair elaborated fish or meat dishes.
- - We usually serve it accompanied by skewers with baby pineapple and bacon and canapes with rye bread.
- - The doses I suggest are enough for 6 people if there are other drinks.
Useful links for this recipe
- - Are you interested in white sangria with citrus fruits, melon and rum? or prefer the recipe made with citrus fruits, nectarines and vodka?
- - Take a look at sangria with red wine for a comparison.
- - As I have already pointed out in other sangria recipes in nutrition facts there is no fruit that, in theory, serves only to flavor the wine. If you eat fruit too, calories and sugar increase.
- - I can not help but remember that you must drink responsibly. That's why I suggest that these doses are enough for 6 people. The portion per head is about 125 ml, higher than the recommended dose of wine (100 ml). But since it is a flavored wine for a special occasion ... for once ...
Calories are still approximately 60% higher than those of the wine.
So do not abuse it.
Drinking in moderation is a good rule for us adults. Minors are not included, they should not drink.
