White Sangria


This sangria is full of citrus flavors, white wine, and apple. I use frozen grapes for flavor, color, and to keep it cool (btw, freeze many more than you need, people are going to munch on them before you have time to use them). Use a good wine for all your drinks. In this one I use white wine and one of my favorite, Goose Bay Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a works really well with the citrus flavors in this sangria. Having friends over? This sangria will get it started right.

Makes 12 servings

1(750 ml) bottles white wine, preferably Sauvignon Blanc, but you can use what you have (it adds more sparkle but I prefer Moscato)
¾ cups sugar
1 lemon, thinly sliced
lime, thinly sliced
1 red apple, thinly sliced
2 cups lime seltzer
2 cups lemon seltzer
1 cup frozen green grapes (freeze more than you need; they’re great for snacking!)
Lots of ice

Make this in a large glass pitcher because its pretty to see the floating fruit and bubbles. Pour in the wine, sugar, lemons, limes, and apple in the pitcher. Stir and chill it until you are ready to serve it.

Now, Just before serving, add both seltzers and lots of frozen grapes. Gently stir it, add ice, and pour it into glasses. That’s it!

Use your creativity here and substitute the citrus fruit with your own favorite fruits like strawberries and blueberries, or kiwis and pineapple.
