For the past two months I’ve been swearing that I’ll master sangria, and while it took me a while to get around to it, last week I finally made good! I’ve had friends in from out of town and thought that it was the perfect chance to try my first of two recipes – one red wine based (coming next week), and one with white wine.
When I first blogged about wanting to step up my mixing skills my friend Ashley immediately offered a white wine sangria recipe that she was sure I had to try. And it came with a warning: he’s not joking. This is one of the most delicious things in my fridge right now, and it’s going to be a new summer staple.
One note: I made it without any soda, and have been adding club soda to taste in each glass (about 3/4 sangria, 1/4 club soda). It’s the perfect ratio for me & it doesn’t go flat- not that it stays in the fridge that long :)
Ashley’s White Wine Sangria
– 1 bottle of cheap white wine
– 1/2 cup light rum
– 1/2 cup triple sec
– 1 can frozen lemonade
– 1 cup lemon lime soda
– assorted unripe fruits (limes, oranges, strawberries, grapes – whatever you like!)
1. Add fruit to pitcher, followed by triple sec and rum. Let sit for minimum of 15 minutes.
2. Add wine to fruit and alcohol mixture. Let sit for as long as possible so flavours can mix, 8 hours is recommended
3. Add lemonade and soda last, to taste.
