Recipe Time: White Sangria

on 04/19/2013

If you’re like me, then then you love a refreshing drink on a summer’s day. If so, then you just might like this White Sangria recipe.  Sangria, a wine/fruit punch found in Spain, Portugal and Argentina is often made with red wine rather than white, but this can be a tasty adaptation as well. There are tons of recipes available online but here’s a quick and easy one to try.

Ingredients:

1 Bottle White Wine (Riesling, Chablis, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc)
2/3 Cup White Sugar
3 Oranges (sliced)
1 Lemon (sliced)
1 Lime (sliced)
2 oz. brandy (optional)
1/2 Liter of Ginger Ale or Club Soda (ginger ale for those with a sweeter tooth!)

Preparation:

Pour wine in the pitcher and squeeze the juice wedges from the orange,lemon and lime into the wine, add brandy if desired. Toss in the fruit wedges (leaving out seeds if possible) and add sugar. Chill overnight. Add ginger ale or club soda just before serving.If you’d like to serve right away, use chilled white wine and serve over lots of ice.Addition ideas: sliced strawberries, peaches, handful of fresh blueberries, raspberries, kiwi, a shot or two of gin, brandy or rum, a cup of citrus-flavored soda pop.Personally, if I were to use a sweeter wine such as Riesling, I would omit the sugar. However, it all depends on your personal tastes. Enjoy!
