Happy Mother’s Day a few days early to all of our favorite moms. We are raising our glass to moms everywhere with this week’s drink — Tickle Me Pink. This rose’ sangria will be a fan favorite when you serve it from your favorite patio to celebrate the moms in your life. It fits The Blind Pig criteria because it is easy, tasty and fresh!
To make this rose’ sangria, you will need a pint of fresh strawberries, 4 fresh limes, 1 bottle of Rose’ wine, 1/2 cup of Zaya Rum, and 4 cups of Diet Sprite. Most sangria’s call for a white rum, but we like to use a dark rum like Zaya because it has a richer flavor that compliments the fruit and the wine nicely.
Start by thinly slicing the strawberries and limes. Place half of the strawberries and limes in a tall pitcher. Save the other half in a tightly sealed container for garnish.
Pour the rose’ wine and the Zaya Rum into the pitcher. Cover the pitcher and place in the refrigerator for 4-24 hours. We made ours the night before for a get-together we were having the following day.
Prior to serving, add 4 cups of Diet Sprite, ice and stir. We prefer Diet Sprite instead of regular. Many sangrias can be overly sweet which overpowers the flavors in the drink. The Diet Sprite achieves the bubbly essence of the sangria without the extra sugar and sweetness.
As you serve your guests place a few slices of strawberries and limes in each glass. It’s a delicious, easy and fun refreshing summer sipper.
