Summer Sangria

What's more refreshing and fun than fresh fruit, white wine, and Italian soda?? ... All of the below mixed together with great company! This version of white wine sangria was concocted by my two lovely sisters during a recent adventure in San Francisco.


Ingredients (no real measurements, everything was eye-balled):

  • 1 bottle of white wine
  • 1 bottle of Italian soda, chilled (we used tangerine ... prefer blood orange but the store was out)
  • variety of fresh fruit, sliced (we used lemon, orange, strawberries, nectarine, and apple)
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • granulated sugar (for rims)

Fill carafe half full of white wine. Add sliced fruit and cinnamon sticks. Top off carafe with rest of white wine. Cover and let the ingredients get to know each other in the fridge overnight. When ready to enjoy, rub edge of glasses with lemon or water and rim with sugar. Pour wine with fruit into glasses, top off with Italian soda. Cheers!
