Here’s a delicious way to enjoy white wine this summer.

A white wine sangria is a fruity but not too sweet version of the traditional red wine sangria.


It’s a great choice for a starter cocktail. Serve it up along with some yummy appetizers and munchies and you are all set.

This is a no fuss type of drink. It comes together very easily and quickly, especially if you use frozen fruit.

However…all good things require time to become fabulous….

You will need to plan it in advance, as it needs to chill for at least an hour, allowing all the flavours to meld together.

Well worth the wait.

If you have fresh seasonal fruit on hand then definitely go ahead and use it.

And, if you need to stretch this pitcher of sangria to serve a few extra people, or if you are a lover of bubbles in your cocktails, then simply top up each glass with some Prosecco, club soda or 7UP.

To be honest, Sangria of any kind is a very easy drink to prepare because there are no hard fast rules.

You can make it with whatever fruit you have, substitute with fruit juice if you’re short on fruit variety, and add whatever wine you’ve got on your shelf. And you can also substitute the orange liqueur with peach or pear schnapps.

Seriously, anything and everything goes…

The bottom line is fruit and wine are a match made in heaven.

Sangria is my favourite way to enjoy wine in summer.

Now it’s your turn to go create yourself a delicious summer cocktail.

Cheers!
