Sangria is typically drunk in Spain, but this recipe uses rose wine and Cointreau, both French ingredients. Delicious at the end of a long summer day! —Lauren Shockey

  • 1 cup strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1 cup seedless green grapes, halved
  • 1 750-ml bottle of rose wine
  • 1/3 cup Cointreau or other orange flavored liqueur

Just made this yesterday, and it was just fabulous! I made it about mid-day and my guests arrived around 7pm so the flavor had a good amount of time to develop. A winner!
