Strawberry syrup (allow time to chill):
2 cups sliced strawberries
cup ½ granulated sugar
cup ½ water
Sangria (allow time to chill):
3 cups sliced strawberries
1 cup raspberries
1 orange, halved and sliced
Juice of 1 orange
¼ cup orange liqueur, optional
1 bottle rosé or white wine or sparkling rosé
Strawberry syrup, to taste
Place the strawberries, sugar, and water in a saucepan set over medium heat. Simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened and juicy.
Set a fine mesh strainer over a bowl and pour the strawberry mixture through the strainer. Use the back of a spoon to press the strawberries against the strainer, extracting as much juice/syrup as possible. Chill the syrup.
Combine all ingredients in a pitcher and stir. Chill for several hours to allow the flavors to combine. Serve chilled over ice.
