Strawberry Rosé Sangria
1 cup water
2 cups frozen strawberries
2 bottles dry rosé
Juice of 2 lemons
10 drops liquid stevia extract (optional)
15 fresh mint leaves
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
3 cans seltzer
Place water and strawberries in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
Place a wire mesh strainer over a small bowl, and pour the strawberry mixture through the strainer. Use the back of a large spoon to mash the strawberries. Set aside the strawberry syrup liquid so it can cool. (I took the remaining strawberry mixture from the strainer and used it to make a PB&J for Hattie!)
Pour wine into a large glass pitcher or drink dispenser. Add strawberry syrup, lemon juice, stevia, fresh mint and strawberries. If you're making ahead of time, stop here and refrigerate. Add seltzer just before serving. Serve over ice!
