The Fourth of July is usually about fireworks and barbecues, but now that we’ll all be truly entertaining again, Ina Garten is giving us something new to celebrate: her summer rosé sangria. The renowned foodie took to Instagram this week in preparation of the long holiday weekend to post a brief tutorial. The refreshing cocktail can be whipped up in big batches, making it ideal for a large gathering. Better yet, Garten’s mix features a heavy dose of fruit, which “makes it good for you, right?” she writes. Here’s a breakdown of the recipe.

Your Shopping List

  • 1 bottle rosé
  • ½ cup pomegranate juice
  • ⅓ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice 
  • ¼ cup fine sugar 
  • 3 tbsp Grand Marnier
  • 1 tbsp cognac or brandy
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice 
  • ½ cup raspberries
  • 8 strawberries, hulled and sliced into quarters 
  • 2 plums, pitted and sliced 

Garten’s How-To

Combine all your liquid ingredients in a large pitcher and then stir in the fruit. To get that authentic sangria taste, put everything in the fridge for at least two hours (but overnight is better, so consider planning ahead). Serve it in a wine goblet that’s filled halfway with ice and then spoon in a few fruit remnants.
