Author Notes: This sangria is a nice and light summer version. Rosé keeps the fruit bright and has a much softer flavor than the traditional red wine base, which lets milder fruits shine through. I used a more minerally French rosé for this recipe because it pairs nicely with the cumber. If you use a Spanish or California rosé, the sangria will likely have have a slightly sweeter, fruity flavor. That can be yummy, too, but a crisp wine will make for a more refreshing drink. To quote a friend, this rosé sangria is "Almost as refreshing as a working air conditioner. Almost."

Food52 Review: I'm a big fan of sangria, whether red or white, and this rosé sangria was remarkable! I loved the combination of peaches and cucumber ... so refreshing, and just right for a hot summer afternoon by the pool. - thehappycookthehappycook

It was pretty good, but I could taste rose more than anything else (which was fine b/c I love rose)... I used a Rose of Malbec, which has fruity tastes to begin with. I even added extra cucumber and a cucumber-infused simple syrup left over from previous drinks and let it sit 8 hours to allow the flavors to meld more, but still couldn't really taste the cucumber or even the peaches. Any ideas to make the flavors pop more? I might try again with a French rose, but then again, I might just drink the wine.

Thanks for the feedback! I'd try it again with a different rose. Choose one that's along the lighter end of the spectrum. It's so interesting to hear this...the first time I mixed up a batch I found it a little *too* cucumbery, so I scaled back the amount of sliced cucumbers.

Thanks again!
