A fizzy Springtime sipper with fresh Rhubarb Stalks

Sliced fresh rhubarb, rose wine and specks of vanilla are combined to create a tartly sweet alcoholic cocktail

Place Chopped Rhubarb in a larrge glass container

Make sure to sprinkle evenly, as shown in video

Slice Vanilla Bean down 1 side

Make sure not to slice the bean too deeply

Add sugar and entire bottle of rose wine to container with Rhubarb and Vanilla

Let Rhubarb Sangria rest for several hours in fridge, swirling occasionally

This process is called maceration and allows the sugars in the wine to break down the fibers in Rhubarb, releasing the flavors of the rhubarb stalks and infusing the wine with its fruit jices

Add the bubbles!

Put several ice cubes or a large cube into a glass, fill halfway with sangria and top off with sparkling water
