Food Friday: Roasted Cherry Basil Sangria

After sharing my love of Jacob’s Creek Moscato last week, I received SOOO MANY requests for a sangria post using this delicious, refreshing wine…so here you are, just in time to celebrate the 4th of July!!! I am OBSESSED with cherries, so when they’re in season, I use them in anything I possibly can!!!! This sangria was no different…SOO SIMPLE to make and so so refreshing and delicious!



2 cups cherries, pitted, stems removed (BC Tree Fruits cherries are THE BEST!)
Fresh basil (from the garden, if possible!!)
Ice cubes
3/4 bottle of Jacob’s Creek Moscato
1 bottle of Santa Cruz Organic Cherry Lemonade


1. Roast the cherries in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes, making sure they don’t burn. I used a heat proof glass dish without foil, as the caramelized syrup is a key ingredient!!!!

2. Once the cherries are done, remove them from the oven and leave them out to cool. Once cooled, place the cherries and basil in a pitcher full of ice cubes. Add all of the cherry syrup as well!

3. Pour 3/4 of the bottle of Jacob’s Creek Moscato into the pitcher, and top it off with your Cherry Lemonade!!!! Stir, and enjoy!!!!!!
