( ‘Meh’ is my new word, by the way. Definition: Indifference; to be used when one simply does not care. A: What do you want for dinner? B: Meh. )
But honestly, it’s never really done it for me.
I mean, ya there’s fruit ( love ) & wine ( double love ), but I feel like ‘they’ ( WTH’s ‘they’ anyway? ) add way too much sugar, unnecessary alcohol(s) AKA liqueur, & always use the wrong kinda wine.
What’s a girl to do?
Make her own skinny Rosé Sangria.
Presenting…skinny summer sangria:
Rosé is summer water.
It’s light, dry, & crisp-ish.
P.S. if you’re confusing Rosé with white Zinfandel, PLEASSSSSSE don’t. Just, don’t.
Trust me & give Rosé a try. You won’t be disappointed because it’s literally insane. ESP Whispering Angel ( << this isn’t a sponsored post, I just really F-ing like WA Rosé ).
Anyway. Back to the skinny Sangria.
Shocker, but I kind of winged it.
First I started off with the ingreds:
And then I incorporated my brand new patio bar.
I have an inside bar cart.
And now, an outside bar cart— which is borderline alarming…
But seriously (!!) there’s nothing more annoying than being unprepared.
Side note on the bar: I bought this Target bar cart ( << which is on sale!! ) & had it hand painted to match my patio’s aesthetic ( if you’re interested in a similar bar cart, e-mail me at Lauryn@TheSkinnyConfidential.com & I’ll hook you up with the artist ).
Ok, back to my Sangria Bar: first off, I filled a Mason Jar pitcher with tons of ice ( like, TONS of ice ).
Then I added two bottles of Rosé, 1 bottle of Perrier, & a little bit of Lemon Love Suja ( if you don’t have LL Suja, add fresh lemonade, sparingly ).
Again, I’m totally not an “exact amount” recipe kinda girl so bear with me.
After adding the liquid I threw in my favorite berries ( raspberries & boysenberries ), Meyer lemon wedges ( DER! ), a couple apple slices, a handful of chopped mint & CHIA SEEDS ( yessss, chia seeds AKA one of the healthiest foods on the planet— they’re full of protein & benefits…& oh-so-good! ) AND then…I mixed it all together like I was churring butter circa 1800.
Soooo delicious & literally the perfect summer cocktail.
Because who the hell doesn’t love a Rosé Sangria bar? Ummm?
If you’re not a fan, you’re totally killing my summer vibe.
