Bastille Day: French Sangria

In honor of Bastille Day on July 14th (we're feeling very French here this Summer), we wanted to give you a refreshing, light Summer Sangria made mostly from French ingredients.

French Sangria

1 bottle dry Rosé or Beaujolais wine
1/2 cup Lillet Rouge
1/2 cup lavender syrup
1/2 oz lemon juice
1 thinly sliced orange
A few raspberries
Several dashes of orange bitters

Combine all ingredients in pitcher or punch bowl and chill. Serve over ice in a wine glass.

Make the lavender syrup by steeping about a half tablespoon of edible lavender into 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water. Heat enough to melt sugar, let steep until fragrant and strain. Will make just over 1/2 cup.

Notes: Before adding all ingredients, taste your wine. Take note of the sweetness. You very well may have to add or subtract from the quantities listed to get the right balance. Less sweet is probably better. If you find that your mixture is too sweet, increase the lemon juice and add more bitters.

Because of the delicate nature of the raspberries, you may want to simply garnish each glass with a raspberry or two instead of adding to the mix.
