( ‘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 it typically contains way too much sugar, unnecessary alcohol(s) AKA liqueur, & the wrong wine ( no one wants Merlot in summer— just saying ).
What’s a girl to do?
Make her own skinny Rosé Sangria, naturally.
Presenting…skinny summer sangria:
Rosé is summer water.
It’s light, dry, & crisp-ish.
P.S. don’t confuse Rosé with white Zinfandel— they’re completely different.
Just trust me & give Rosé a try. Just PLEASE. One try; you won’t be disappointed because it’s literally insane. ESP Whispering Angel ( << this isn’t a sponsored post, I just really 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 new patio bar.
I have an inside bar cart and outside bar cart. Although this may sound somewhat alarming, it’s not because the cute carts can be used for parties/entertaining/vanities ( not just for alcohol ).
Side note on the bar’s design: 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 painter ).
Ok, so 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 a measuring cup kind of 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 kind of churred the mixture ( like butter circa 1800 ) with a wooden stick.
Soooo delicious & literally the perfect summer cocktail because who the doesn’t love a Rosé Sangria bar?
If you’re not a fan, you’re totally killing my summer vibe.
