Since the days have been getting warmer this spring, and we had a plethora of fruit, we decided to make some sangria. Sangria is a typical drink from Spain, consisting of wine, fruit, a sweetener and sometimes some brandy or a liqueur. The beauty of sangria is that you can add any fruit to it, any wine to it, and make it your own. Use whatever you have around the house, and let it steep together for a few hours or up to a couple days, and you can have yourself a tasty beverage! We decided to use a white wine this go around, although red has typically been the base for traditional sangria. Perfect for a brunch or group of friends, sangria blanca should be on your “to drink” list this spring!
Cut fruit to desired cubes or slices, and place in a pitcher.
We used: pineapple, lemons, limes, oranges and blackberries.
Top with a bottle of white wine. We added some orange liqueur as well, about 1/2 cup. If you prefer, you can add 7-up, Sprite or club soda instead of the liqueur.
Let sit for about 1 hour, then top with ice in the pitcher, if there is room, or place ice in glasses, and serve. Salud!Follow my blog with Bloglovin
