MIxed Berry Rose' Sangria _America's Test KitchenFor this warm-weathered adult beverage, courtesy of America’s Test Kitchen, a summery rose’ wine replaces the typical red wine for a fun take on sangria and packed it full of fresh mixed-berry flavors. Whisking the dry rosé into the berry mixture and letting it sit for at least 4 hours to steep is the key to getting the best flavors. Grand Marnier and more fresh berries help fortify the wine mixture to make a beverage that was as stunning to look at as it was to drink—enough so that you’ll wish it were always happy hour


  • 6 ounces (1 heaping cup) blueberries, divided
  • 5 ounces (1 cup) strawberries, hulled, divided
  • 1 (750-ml) bottle dry rosé wine, chilled


  1. Using potato masher, mash half of raspberries, half of blueberries, half of strawberries, and sugar in large bowl until berries are thoroughly crushed and sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute. Whisk rosé into mashed berries until combined. Transfer to refrigerator and chill for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, cut remaining raspberries in half and cut remaining strawberries into ½-inch pieces. Transfer cut berries to serving pitcher. Add Grand Marnier and remaining blueberries. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. Strain rosé mixture through fine‑mesh strainer set over 2-quart liquid measuring cup or large bowl, pressing on solids to extract as much juice as possible. Discard solids.
  4. Transfer strained mixture to pitcher with berries and stir to combine. Serve.

Notes & Substitutions:

  • Use a dry rosé wine that isn’t too expensive but one that you would enjoy drinking on its own.
  • Most raspberries and blueberries come in 6-ounce containers, but if you can find only 5-ounce containers, you don’t need to buy a second container to make up the extra ounce. If you cannot find all the berries mentioned, you can also use a single variety of berry or swap in blackberries, as long as the total amount still equals 17 ounces.
  • You can also substitute a different orange liqueur for the Grand Marnier, if desired.
