Sparkling Rose Sangarita is for those moments when you can’t decide between a fruity sangria and salty margarita! Tequila Blanco, mixed with fresh orange and lime juice then finished off with sparkling rose!
There has never been a margarita I haven’t liked.
Actually, correction. My husband’s choice of cucumber jalapeno. I prefer my cucumber diving into a big ol pool of creamy hummus. Not mixed with my margarita. Thank you very much.
With summer slipping through our fingers, I find myself craving one last fruity treat. While I am beyond excited for all things fall (myself and every other girl out there), it is always sad to kiss summer goodbye. The long days of sunlight, dinner on our patio, morning walks to the park, and last but not least, another lake season in the books. And with summer’s beautiful weather, I find my desire for cocktails on Sunday’s to be the norm.
What is it about a refreshing cocktail to kick off the week?
Sunday Funday’s. While there are multiple types of bottles at our fun days now, no one complains when the drinks start pouring! This past February when we vacationed in Naples, Florida with my parents, brother, sister in law and their girls, we had a siblings night out. It had been too long since our last outing and with young kids at home, we were all ready to let loose. We started out with some cocktails before dinner. This is where my love affair started with rosé.
Since then, I have been popping bottles. But apparently my skills are lacking because as I was opening my first bottle of Michelle’s Sparkling Wine, it was more like a scene from a movie. Cork flies, rose spraying the cabinets, showering myself in sparkling wine all while I am trying to stop from wasting any more of my precious wine. That was one of those moments that time had to pass to start chuckling! Thank goodness it was Friday around 3pm, close enough to 5pm for me!
Ever since I combined sparkling wine and margaritas, I have been sipping on them all summer long. And it seems like you all love them just as much! So I started playing around again, and this Sparkling Rosé Sangarita may trump my former lovers. Gasp! They start with fresh orange and lime juice. These classic flavors can be found in just about any margarita along with sangrias! Then we add tequila blanco. I love this type of tequila for its clean finish. As of now, we have a typical margarita. But the best is saved for last…sparkling rosé!
Michelle’s Sparkling Wine is ideal for this Sparkling Rosé Sangarita, as it is not overly sweet, and is filled with berries and citrus notes. It is made from premium grapes from the Washington state’s Columbia Valley area. It finishes soft and fruity so no worries about a long finish with these sangaritas.
These cocktails are seriously so simple. As in stupid simple and are begging for you to make them for your next Sunday Funday. Or tailgate. Or BBQ. Or even on a Thursday night! You can make the orange, lime and tequila mixture ahead of time. Chill in the fridge and then when it’s go time, add to a glass with ice, pop some bottles and cheers!
Sunday’s were meant for relaxing. And drinking bottomless glasses of Sparkling Rosé Sangarita!
