White Wine Sangria

This is a dangerously addictive drink – easy to customize, easy to make, easy to drink. We used a bottle of buttery Chardonnay and it blended beautifully with the fruits. Author of the recipe is .

  • 1 Bottle of white wine (Riesling, Albarino, Chablis, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc).
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 3 oranges (sliced) or may substitute 1 cup of orange juice)
  • 1 lemon (sliced)
  • 1 lime (sliced)
  • 1/2 liter club soda
  • handful of hulled and sliced strawberries

Preparation:

Pour wine in the pitcher and squeeze the juice wedges from the orange,lemon and lime into the wine. 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: peaches, handful of fresh blueberries, raspberries, kiwi, a shot or two of gin, brandy or rum, a cup of citrus-flavored soda pop, ginger ale in place of the club soda.

We had a wine-lover coming over for lunch and had a tough time figuring out what to serve.  This was the perfect complement to a light, summer brunch/lunch including grilled chicken and lemon quinoa.  It might have been prettier served in wine glasses instead of tall tumblers, but these worked well.  One of the best parts was eating the boozy fruit as dessert.
