A couple weeks ago Josh and I had friends over to our new apartment. I had been craving my first sangria of the season and I am a sucker for basil so this one won my attention. Give it a try it at your next get together and let me know what you think!
strawberry basil sangria recipe:
- 1/2 cup limoncello
- 1 cup strawberries, sliced
- 12 basil leaves
- Finely grated zest of 1 lemon, plus 1 lemon, thinly sliced, for garnish
- 1/4 cup lemonade
- 2 bottles rosé
Active time: 10 minutes
Total time: At least 2 hours
In a large pitcher or punch bowl, stir together all ingredients except wine and lemon slices. Refrigerate 2 hours or as long as overnight. When ready to serve, stir in the wine. Pour into ice-filled glasses, garnish with lemon slices, and serve.
I loved this refreshing, easy to make sangria. The only thing I would change from the recipe is to add more basil. It had soft tones of basil, but I want to taste it! So next time I am going to do a few less strawberries and one more handful of basil. Enjoy! Recipe from Oprah Magazine.
