Berry Tequila Rosé Sangria – say that three times fast. This drink is part sangria, part berry tequila mojito, part fabulous.
Its peak berry season, and this muddled berry drink is the perfect girl’s night cocktail. It’s a great cocktail when you can’t decide if you want wine, a mojito, or a margarita. It is a fun play on them all.
Muddle the berries in a pitcher with fresh lime juice and agave nectar, add in a bottle of dry Rosé, and spike it with Exotico tequila blanco. Top each serving with sparkling water and serve over ice, it doesn’t get any easier than that.
This perfectly clear and crisp tequila blanco elevates this drink with spicy undertones and a robust taste of fresh agave, hints of pepper, herbal notes, and finishes with a fresh wave of heat followed by a balanced spice.
The inspiration for this Berry Rosé Tequila Sangria is clearly Mexican inspired. The bottle of tequila, Mexican textiles, handmade and hand painted glasses – everything screams Mexico! Speaking of Mexico…guess what guys? I am packing up and heading to a dream trip to the heart of Mexico – Mexico City!
Let’s top these cocktails with a cherry on top because today I am celebrating! I am going to be living my best life visiting ancient pyramids, museum of Frida Kahlo, Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, mercados, and of course eating all the street food and tacos I see.
Please follow along on my adventure. I will be sharing it all on Instagram and will share a travel blog post once I return.
Have you been to Mexico City? What must I visit, see, or eat?
