  • -1 bottle of rosé (or pink) wine
  • -1 cup of strawberries, halved
  • -1/2 cup of water
  • -1 tablespoon of sugar (optional)

  • A large pot (5-6 liters)
  • A mesh strainer, preferably made of stainless steel
  • A large bowl or other container for collecting juice
  • a plastic funnel for transferring juice from the bowl to the carboy and back again
  • A carboy (plastic jug) with a narrow neck such as a 2 liter soda bottle or milk jug; I recommend using something with a narrow neck because you’ll be pouring hot liquid into it and you want something that will not easily tip over


The first thing you need is a bottle of rosé. The best time to start your homemade rosé is with a chilled bottle of dry rosé. If you don’t have one on hand, be sure to put the bottle in the fridge for an hour or so before starting.
You’ll also need a pot and some sugar (equal parts sugar and water).
Add the sugar and water mixture to the pot, then fill it about halfway up with cold water. Stir until all the sugar is dissolved, then turn on medium heat until it starts boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low-medium and let simmer for five minutes or so while you prep the rest of your ingredients.


The rosa wine is made from red grapes and can be served with fruit, such as oranges. The recipe for this drink is quite simple and can be done in the comfort of your own home. It’s a great way to relax after a long day’s work or while reading a book. To make one liter of rosa wine, you’ll need:

  • -1 kg (2.2 lb) grapefruit
  • -700 grams (1.5 lb) sugar
  • -7 liters (1 gallon) water

Drink and serve

If you want to enjoy rosa wine at home, the first thing you’ll need is a bottle of red wine. Pick one that has a light body and a high alcohol content, preferably made from grapes such as cabernet sauvignon, zinfandel or grenache. Once you’ve found your perfect bottle, pour it into an airtight container and let it sit for about three days before moving onto the next step. Add in some fresh strawberries (or other fruit) into your container with the wine. Make sure there are plenty of berries for every 750ml of liquid. Keep adding fruit over the next few days until you have about 3 cups worth per 750ml of liquid.
