White Sangria

White Sangria

Strawberries, Oranges, Lemons, Peaches, Peach Schnspps, Apricot Brandy, Dry White Wine, a Splash of Simple Syrup, and Soda Water.

Sangria goes back almost a far as wine. Water was unsafe to drink, so people made wine punch. Different areas of Europe have different versions, and the Spanish version dates back to the 1700’s. It traditionally has red wine, brandy, and fresh fruit. A lot of Sangria has spice from clove, cinnamon, or ginger. I make mine without the spice in a very refreshing style. It is closer to the style used in Southern Spain called “Zurra” including peach or nectarine.
It is recommended to serve in a wine glass, and the flavors improve if you let your sangria sit in the fridge overnight so the fruit flavors and be absorbed.

Perfect for the summer…..enjoy
