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."

Cheers! - eatlovedrink

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. - thehappycookVictoria Ross
