Vanilla Berry Sparkling Sangria Recipe with Rosé – A sweet sparkling sangria recipe with fresh berries, rosé, rum, sparkling water and vanilla bean.
This sweet and refreshing Vanilla Berry Sparkling Sangria is made with fresh berries, rosé, a touch of rum and sparkling water. The flavor is boosted by a vanilla-infused simple syrup. Don’t use vanilla extract here, a whole vanilla bean split down the middle provides the perfect flavor punch. You’ll love it!
Did you know that sangria made its American debut at the 1964/1965 New York World’s Fair? It’s true! At the Spanish Pavilion, fair guests could have their first taste of chilled red wine sangria. This fruity wine-based drink has evolved quite a bit over the years, and cooks have gotten creative with the ingredients. Wine is always the base, but the type of wine varies between red, white and rosé. Fresh fruit is almost always added. In the past I’ve experimented adding with apple cider and peaches to my sangria. I even created a pomegranate-based Rosh Hashanah sangria! I love that wine-infused fruit flavor, it’s the perfect beverage for a warm spring or summer afternoon.
I think this might be my favorite sangria recipe to date. This sangria goes down soooo easy… it’s addictive, the perfect chilled drink for a brunch buffet. Enjoy!
