This Strawberry Rose Sangria is a refreshing cocktail with Strawberry Schnapps, vanilla vodka, fresh strawberries and a splash of soda. Garnish with heart-shaped strawberries and share a pitcher with your sweetheart.
I am so behind in my posting due to my family being hit hard with the flu this season. This is the first weekend in over a month that one of us isn’t sick. My husband and I are finally having our Valentine’s dinner out tonight. I’m definitely looking forward to some adult time and great food. A nice pitcher of this wouldn’t hurt either!
It is no secret that I have a thing for sangria’s and dessert martinis. A Chocolate Covered Strawberry Martini, Salted Caramel Chocolate Martini or a pitcher of this Strawberry Rose Sangria are perfect for a stay-in Valentine’s Day dinner or an after dinner cocktail. As a bonus, having most of your cocktails at home is a great way to save a few dollars as well. I usually enjoy my own recipes a lot more than the ones I order at most restaurants anyway.
Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits to use in a sangria and are a great stand alone fruit with Rose. The Strawberry Schnapps adds the perfect, festive red tone to this beautiful cocktail. I like to use vanilla vodka, but regular vodka would do just fine as well. A splash of Sprite adds the perfect bit of fizz for a bit of fancy romance and added sweetness. Fresh strawberries are easily cut into heart shapes with a paring knife for a cute garnishment.
You can’t go wrong with chocolate and wine. Try my favorite, Red Wine Dark Chocolate Fondue Dip or Baileys Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes. Check out my Cocktails Page for more great Sangria’s and recipe ideas for every season.
