Strawberry Rhubarb Sangria

This post may contain affiliate links.

Oh, hello summer. We’re so glad you are here. There is rosé to drink. Rosé that’s hanging out with sweet strawberry rhubarb, fresh lemon and a little smidge of liquors – and we want in. Are you ready? You look ready. Ready to be poolside in a lounger with a big hat, sunglasses, a good book, and a bottomless glass of Strawberry Rhubarb Sangria.

Oh ya, and one of those bathing suits that makes you feel epic in all the right ways.

Okay yes. Now we’re ready.

Simple Sangria Elements

Sangria is the best crowd pleasing cocktail. It’s hard to mess up and it doesn’t cost a lot to supply a crowd. What could be better?!

Traditionally sangria is a combo of wine, brandy and juice. While it’s delicious to go the traditional route, it’s equally delicious to switch it up. So our Strawberry Rhubarb is going to blend fresh strawberries, rhubarb simple syrup with dry (ahem, cheap, ahem) rosé wine, fresh lemon, peach liquor, triple sec and soda water or lemon lime soda.

Simple, just sweet enough, not too sweet and not too boozy. Something you can sip on all afternoon.

Agh, just so  thirsty.

Rhubarb Simple Syrup

It really is defined by it’s name. Simple.

Sweet strawberries and crisp rhubarb mingle with dry rosé wine for the perfect summertime sangria.

When you make your simple syrup, strain it before you chill it. You can strain it afterwards of course, but you should know its only in the photos here because it looks pretty. Pinterest and all that.

A chunk of rhubarb clogging up your eco-friendly metal straw? NOT pretty.

TIP:  After straining I like to dip the rim of the glass in the leftover sweet rhubarb then in sugar for a sugared-rhubarb rim.

Sangria Goodness and more…

Want to up the ante? FREEZE IT. . Yup, freeze your strawberry rhubarb sangria and make yourself some trendy Frosé.

Can’t find rhubarb? Truth is, it can be hit or miss at the market. Good news though. You can try these other frosé slash sangria recipes:

  • Lavender Peach Wine Slushies. If you’re taking advantage of the good New England herb growing weather, may I recommend growing some lavender? If you’re not about the green thumb you can always buy culinary lavender. But besides smelling wonderful, it’s great for sangria, lattes or ice cream.
  • The original HTP Frosé recipe with a combination of rosé and elderflower.
  • Leslie is hooking it up with Blood Orange Sangria.
  • And if you’re into Kombucha, definitely try out Kombucha Sangria from How Sweet Eats.

Ready to sip into summer? Let’s do it.

Ingredients

Strawberry Rhubarb Sangria

  • 2 750 ml bottle rosé
  • 1 batch rhubarb simple syrup
  • ½ cup triple sec
  • ¼ cup peach schnapps
  • juice of 1 lemon about 2 tablespoons
  • 1 pint strawberries sliced
  • 3-4 cans soda water or lemon lime soda e.g. Sprite, 7Up, etc. see notes

Rhubarb Simple Syrup

  • 2 cups rhubarb diced small (about 4-5 stalks)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water

Instructions

Strawberry Rhubarb Sangria

  • Combine rosé, rhubarb simple syrup, triple sec, peach schnapps, lemon juice and strawberries in a pitcher and stir until well combined.
  • Fill wine glasses or cocktail glasses with ice and pour sangria over the ice 1/2 up the glass.  Top with either club soda or lemon lime soda.
  • Optional garnish ideas: rhubarb strips (peel strips of rhubarb using a vegetable peeler), sugared rim, flamed lemon peel (peel of a lemon, citrus side hit with the flame of a match)

Rhubarb Simple Syrup

  • In a medium size saucepan, combine the diced rhubarb, sugar and water.
  • Bring to a boil over medium high heat.  Once it reaches a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Strain and let cool.

Notes

  • If you prefer more wine forward, less sweet cocktails use club soda.  If you want something that is more fruity and tastes less like wine use Sprite, 7Up or something similar.

This is such a brilliant flavor idea for sangria! I make simple syrup from rhubarb every year, but I've never thought about turning it into a perfect spring/early summer sangria. Love!!
