sexy white wine sangria


There's certainly no shortage of sangria recipes floating around out there in the recipesphere; but on a hot, casual Saturday afternoon, I'm usually wanting white wine, rather than red. The club soda in this particular version really does it for me by skimming off the overly sweet and leaving behind a thirst-quenching crispness.

Alone or with your best sangria drinkin' guys & gals, this super refreshing and very simple (chances are good you already have most of the ingredients in your kitchen) winey goodness does the trick.

Sexy White Wine Sangria
  • 1 bottle of Sauvignon Blanc 
  • 1/2 litre of club soda (or ginger ale if you like it really sweet ... I personally do not) 
  • 2 kiwis 
  • 1/2 cup of raspberries 
  • 2 limes 
  • 1/2 cup of sugar 
Cut the kiwi and the lime into wedges. Pour the wine into a large, preferably glass, pitcher. Add all the fruit and the sugar then mix well. Cover and let it sit in the fridge for at least one hour. When you’re ready to drink, add the club soda and about two handfuls of ice. Mix again and serve immediately.

  11. Made it this weekend. Fantastic! I added strawberries as well. Not a drop left. Tastes like champagne.

  12. I like for my sagria to have a even blend of crispness while still somewhat sweet. Do you feel the club soda works best for this or the ginger ale? I might try a little of both

  13. As you can tell, whether you select to have a single dinner party or if you are thinking of spending a lifetime savoring wine with your various friends, there are wine accessories that you will need to take into consideration. However, provided that you begin with the basics, you will never need to concern yourself about missing wine accessories and you can always build from that point on.
