Try Swirl's Rose Sangria recipe - it's perfect for a hot, holiday weekend or outdoor party.
-2 btls dry rose wine (I love Crios Rose of Malbec or Kluge Rose)
-1/2 cup orange juice
-1/3 cup Grand Marnier
-1 cup white rum (or sparkling water or Sprite to cut down on the alcohol)
-1 cup sugar
-fruit of your choice. Swirl prefers sliced strawberries, thin peach slices, thin lemon slices, handful of raspberries or blueberries
-a few torn mint leaves for pitcher and for garnish
Combine all ingredients except fruit in a big glass pitcher (to show off the gorgeous color). Stir to sugar dissolves. Add fruit, refrigerate for at least 1 hr (2 hrs if you're patient!).
Sit back with some Bebel Gilberto playing in the background. Bendy straw optional.
