White Sangria

Perhaps I should explain myself for those whom have not had the pleasure to indulge. Sangria is a delicious, and highly refreshing alcoholic beverage, traditionally served in warm weather. The Spanish punch, is a mixture of wine, fruit and spirits.

I have been making variations of this Sangria for years, and I’m nearly certain, I have now perfected it. Of course, there are many methods of concocting this blissful summer treat. Now, this particular recipe may not be to everyone’s taste. However, I find it absolutely perfect and in turn, wish to share it with you.

Before I list off the Ingredients and Directions, I would like to offer some advice as to how and when to enjoy it:

The Perfect Meal: Sangria is very sweet, so it is best matched with a savory dish. I find it to be best suited with Back Ribs, or Steak. It’s sweet, thirst quenching mixture provides the perfect relief for salty after-tastes.

The Perfect Day: Enjoy it on a beautiful summer day that you are able to share with others. This drink is not intended for single servings. The idea is to make it in batches for parties or family dinners. Sangria is a form of Punch, so automatically it takes on a very social connotation.

The Perfect Intoxication: If you’re looking to get “wasted” or “buckled” off of Sangria, you will probably need about 50 glasses. This drink is not intended to induce a buzz. Since it contains a very small amount of alcohol, it simply encourages a loose and relaxed state of mind.

INGREDIENTS (For 2L):

500 ml White Wine

500 ml Lemonade

200 ml Orange Juice

1 Can Club Soda

2 shots Triple Sec/Brandy/Run-of-the-mill-dark-liquor-you-may-have-on-hand

1/3 cup Blackberries

1/2 Pear (cubed or sliced)

1/2 Apple (cubed or sliced)

1/2 Orange (sliced)

1/2 Grapefruit (sliced)

1/2 Lime (sliced)

DIRECTIONS

1) Pour all of the fruit to the bottom of a large jug

2) Pour in the Wine and Triple Sec, and let stand for 5 minutes

3) Pour in the Lemonade, Orange Juice, and Club Soda

4) With a thin ladle, stir the mixture vigorously

5) Serve on ice and enjoy.

*DISCLAIMER* – THIS IS NOT A FEMININE DRINK. SANGRIA IS A CHARMING SUMMER PUNCH, MEANT TO BE ENJOYED BY ALL.
