It doesn’t matter how much “the wine guy” glowers at us from the other side of the patio this Happy Hour—it’s hot, and we’re making sangria. And when it comes to pouring a bottle of wine into a pitcher of berries and juice, there’s no higher authority than America’s dean of entertaining, Martha Stewart herself. So grab your favorite punch vessel and get started on her recipe for rosé sangria.
Stewart starts with an assortment of seasonal fruit such as blackberries, blueberries, and hulled strawberries. She stirs in a tablespoon of superfine sugar (you can add more if you prefer your imbibements on the sweeter side) before adding a raspberry liquor like Framboise or Chambord. After the mixture macerates for an hour, it’s time to incorporate the chilled rosé and white cranberry juice. It’s an undeniably refreshing and seasonally necessary punch to kick off your weekend. Drink up.
