Rosé Sangria (21 Day Fix approved)
Booze that's 21 Day Fix approved?! Yes way, Rosé ;)
Rosé wines are made from the same grapes as reds, but rosés can range in color from super-pigmented magenta to golden copper. The color depends on two things: the type of grapes that were used and how long the skins were soaked in the juice.
Some grapes have a thicker skin, and this is what imparts a richer color. For rosé wines, the skins are left in the juice for about 12–24 hours. For red wines, the skins can sit with the juice for up to three weeks, whereas for white wines, the skin spends no time in contact with the juice.
