This Moroccan-inspired sangria recipe makes the best summer cocktail. Created by Gabriel Cabrera of Artful Desperado and featured on West Elm's Front & Main, the Marrakech Sangria looks nothing like the alcoholic beverage you are already acquainted with.

The edible rose petal-garnished drink has a dry white wine base, but instead of going for a fruit juice and floating fruit salad, it includes an elderberry liqueur, figs and frozen grapes. It is also topped with fresh mint leaves. To make this aromatic and fresh libation at home, you will need anise syrup, club soda, ice and lemon juice as well.

This is the best summer cocktail to serve at a dinner party, as it will surely leave a lasting impression on your guests.
