Perfect for any spring or summer gathering, this bubbly, refreshing rosé sangria is as easy to make as it is to sip. To switch things up, you could also substitute fresh peaches and/or raspberries in place of the strawberries used to create the puree. Get more sangria recipes here.
In this week's episode of CHOW Happy Hour, Martin Cate of Smuggler's Cove in San Francisco is joined by San Francisco cocktail and spirits evangelist Yael Amyra. Yael makes a Between the Sheets and explains how sometimes all it takes is the warmth of a stiff drink to calm nerves and mend a relationship.
This wintry, ruby-red spin on sangria is a staff favorite but comes with a warning: It goes down easy. You can make it a day ahead to make your life that much easier, and just add the Champagne right before serving.
