White Wine Summer Fruit Sangria

9 Jul

A refreshing alternative to sweet, syrupy red wine sangria:

{Auntie C’s White Wine Summer Fruit Sangria}

Over the July 4th weekend, Auntie C and Uncle B came for a visit bearing a bounty of fresh summer fruit, Pinot Grigio and Cointreau.  We sat around the table on the deck, tasting and chopping and tasting some more.

The result:  a lighter, crisper version of your typical sangria that was not too cloyingly sweet and helped us beat the heat sipping in style.

Ingredients

  • 2 bottles white wine (Pinot Grigio or Rioja)
  • 1/2 cup Cointreau
  • Raspberries, peaches, strawberries and any other summer fruit on hand
  • 2 limes
  • 2-3 cups peach nectar juice (if you can’t find peach nectar, add sugar to taste)
  • Club soda

Step 1

Pour the wine into your pitcher.

Step 2

Add the washed and chopped fruit to the wine.

Step 3

Squeeze in lime juice.

Step 4

Add the Cointreau and peach nectar juice (or sugar).

Step 6

Let sit and chill for at least 2 hours.

Step 7

Pour individual glasses and top off with club soda.

Salud!
