  • Makes: 6 servings
  • Prep time: 20 minutes
  • Chill time: About 2 hours


For the raspberry-mint syrup:
  • 2 cups raspberries, packed
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 strips (1-by-3-inches) lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 sprigs fresh mint
  • 2 cups water
For raspberry-mint rosé sangria:
  • 1/4 cup each: gin, brandy and raspberry-mint syrup
  • 1 bottle rosé wine
  • 1 medium Cara Cara or blood orange, halved and cut in half-inch thick half moons
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced and seeded
  • 4 strawberries, hulled and sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup blackberries, halved
  • 1 can (11.15 ounces) chilled San Pellegrino Aranciata or Aranciata Rossa Sparkling beverage
  • Mint sprigs, for garnish 


  1. For the raspberry-mint syrup, combine all ingredients in a large saucepan. Heat to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar.
  2. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 5 to 10 minutes until fruit is falling apart. Cool mixture. Strain through a sieve into a bowl. Press solids to extract all the liquid. Discard solids. Cool, cover and refrigerate.
  3. For rosé sangria, combine gin, brandy, raspberry-mint syrup and rosé wine in a large glass pitcher. (I often use a huge glass beverage jar for parties.)
  4. Add fruits to macerate. Refrigerate until well chilled, about 2 hours. 
  5. To serve, add chilled citrus-flavored soda and stir to combine and fizz. Serve in a large wine goblet over ice. Garnish with a sprig of mint. 


  • For a non-alcoholic punch, try combining syrup with lemonade or limeade to taste, and sparkle up with lemon- or lime-flavored soda water.
  • Can’t find San Pellegrino Aranciata or Aranciata Rossa Sparkling beverage? Substitute 12 ounces of any chilled citrus-infused soda water.
