Vino Francesca

  • SERVINGS: 6 drinks
  • MAKE-AHEAD

Gary Sullivan of Rocca Kitchen & Bar in Boston created this food-friendly sangria around Rocca's house rosé. "I wanted to maintain the wine's fresh fruit flavors," he says.

  1. 1/3 cup honey
  2. 1/3 cup boiling water
  3. 15 sage leaves, plus more for garnish
  4. One 750-milliliter bottle rosé
  5. Ice
  6. Lemon twists, for garnish
  1. In a small, heatproof bowl, stir the honey into the boiling water until dissolved. Add the 15 sage leaves and muddle them with a wooden spoon. Let the syrup cool slightly, then strain it into a pitcher, pressing hard on the sage leaves. Pour in the rosé and stir well. Serve the sangria in wineglasses over ice, garnishing each glass with a lemon twist and sage leaf.
