When spring finally decides to show its pretty face, you’ll want a glass of this sangria in your hand! I used a rosé wine from Trader Joe’s, blood oranges, raspberries and fresh basil. The flavors are sweet, tart, herbal and perfect for a warm spring day on the patio!

For a stronger kick, add a dash of Solerno and for a lighter taste, top with seltzer water!
