Rose' Sangria recipe

6 servings

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup sugar

2 pears

2 peaches

1 cup raspberries

1/4 cup Triple Sec

1 bottle Rose' wine, chilled

PREPARATION

First, make simple syrup by boiling 1/2 cup of water in a small saucepan. Remove from heat and add sugar, stirring until sugar is completely dissolved.  Cool completely.

Thinly slice fruit and save a few slices for garnish. Put fruit in pitcher and add triple sec, cold simple syrup, and wine. Stir and serve with saved fruit used as a garnish.

PROTIP: Prepping overnight will pump up the flavor and guarantee fruit is soaked through. For those having events away from home, prep ingredients in a cooler/pitcher with a spigot for easy transport and serving.
