White Wine Sangria

White Wine Sangria With A Twist

Even though Fall is officially here we still have some wonderful warm days left here in Virginia and a White Wine Sangria is still a refreshing choice for a Saturday evening with good company. Here is my favorite Sangria! Instead of a regular glass of white wine, which can sometimes be a little strong, this Sangria is light and refreshing with a citrous touch. The White Wine Sangria is the perfect alternative, if you like me, prefer to avoid red wine and I’m confident that you’ll really enjoy it 🙂

White Wine Sangria With A Twist (makes 8 serving)

Ingredients:

1 bottle Chardoney

1/4 cup super fine sugar (50 gram)

1 lime, sliced thin

1 lemon, sliced thin

1/2 Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced thin

1 cup apple juice

pinch of salt

12 oz seltzer water

ice cubes

Directions:

In a large pitcher combine wine and sugar, stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Add lime, lemon, apple, apple juice and salt, mix well. Refrigerate pitcher and at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours. Just before serving add seltzer and ice cubes. Enjoy!

Peachy White Wine Sangria

Peachy White Wine Sangria

Although summer has not officially arrived yet, it sure feels like it. And for those hot days it’s nice to lounge with a glass of cold Sangria. I prefer white wine and here is a Sangria with a little peach schnapps and elderflower concentrate. I made this with a single glass serving in mind, since it can be difficult to scale down from a pitcher size recipe. The type of wine of course will alter the taste. Use the type of wine you like but keep in mind that you may have to use less elderflower concentrate, the sweeter the wine is. I hope you enjoy your lazy summer days to its fullest.

Ingredients: makes 1 glass

3/4 cup Chardonnay, chilled (180 ml)

2 teaspoons peach schnapps

3 teaspoons elderflower concentrate

orange slice

lime slice

ice cubes

a splash of seltzer water, optional

Directions:

Toss all ingredients into a glass, plant yourself in a comfortable lounge chair and enjoy. Cheers
