SALTY DOG SANGRIA is the ultimate refreshing Summer cocktail! Grapefruit vodka, juice, rose, club soda, and simple syrup come together in one refreshing and beautiful sip.
SALTY DOG SANGRIA
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 bottles Rose Wine
12 ounce can ginger ale
2 cups ruby red grapefruit juice
1 cup Stoli Crushed Ruby Red Grapefruit Vodka
course sea salt and grapefruit zest for rim
Heat sugar and water in a small saucepan over high heat. Stir to combine. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook for approximately 10-15 minutes, or until the syrup has reduced by half and thickened slightly. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a large pitcher, stir together all ingredients except simple syrup (sugar and water mixture) and stir to combine. You should have approximately 1/2 cup simple syrup. I recommend adding half first, stirring and tasting, then adding more to your taste. I liked it with the entire 1/2 cup added, but its all up to your taste! Add the grapefruit slices to the pitcher and stir. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Dip each glass in water and then coat in sea salt (I added a little grapefruit zest to the salt for fun) and fill with ice. Pour the sangria in and enjoy!
