Why you’ll love this sangria with vodka recipe
There is something very English Summertime about the combination of fresh strawberries, elderflower liqueur, mint and rosé wine in this simple Strawberry Mint Sangria recipe.
Sangria may be a drink that you know you’ll have a good time drinking but something about it also feels like it would pair well with a fancy high tea. Fun, yet sophisticated.

This big-batch Rosé Elderflower Sangria recipe is perfect if you’re looking for summery wine cocktail recipes to serve at your next gathering.
It has enough going on to make it seem fancy but it is seriously easy to make – you can even get ahead by making most of it a couple of hours before your guests arrive!
Here’s what you need to make this Rosé Sangria:
- bottle of rosé wine
- elderflower liqueur
- sparkling water, chilled
- 4-6 fresh strawberries, sliced
- 1 lemon, sliced
- 8-10 fresh mint leaves
Choose a rosé wine that is affordable (as you’re mixing it with things you don’t want a premium bottle) but also nice enough to drink by itself as it makes up most of the cocktail.
Go for something not too sweet (I like a rosé from Provence) as you’ll be adding sugar in the elderflower liqueur.
I like vodka here to add a bit of a kick but if you’d like to add a bit more flavor you can use gin instead.
St. Germain is my go-to elderflower liqueur as it adds sweetness and a beautiful floral flavor to so many of my favorite elderflower cocktails.
Regular sparkling water (I use club soda) is fine here, but you can use a strawberry-flavored one if you really want to amp up that berry flavor!
See the printable recipe card for quantities and full recipe.
Cut the stems off the strawberries, then slice in half. Slice the lemons, then slice in half.
Add the sliced strawberries, sliced lemons, and mint leaves to a pitcher.
Pour in the bottle of rosé, vodka, and elderflower liqueur. Stir gently, and chill for 4 hours.
Add the sparkling water just before serving.
- Change up the fruit – orange slices would work well in place of the lemon, and any fresh fruit you’d ordinarily find in sangria or a Pimm’s Cup, as well as cucumber slices, would all be delicious here.
- Change up the wine – this is a rosé sangria, but it would also taste delicious with a slightly sweet white wine like a Sauvignon Blanc.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! You can make the sangria up to 6 hours in advance and keep it in the fridge. Just wait to add the sparkling water until just before serving to keep the bubbles!
Leftover sangria? Well, okay I’ve never had that problem! But it will still be delicious the next day but I probably wouldn’t serve it to guests as the sparkling water will have gone mostly flat.
Sure, just leave out the vodka.
