I love this fabulous fruity white sangria recipe, so much! Especially during the summer, but it’s okay to drink it year round. I give you permission!
Does this fruity white sangria look good or what? I ask you!
It is so delicious! And filled with fruit. Lots of fruits. But not so much that you will lament how little sangria is in the glass! There is nothing worse than lifting your glass of sangria and having pieces of fruit hit you in the face all the while sipping a thimbleful of sangria!
More sangria, please.
Many peeps think more fruit equals better sangria and where the fruit does help the flavor when it is steeping, you only want to add enough to garnish when you serve it and of course, one must have a few pieces of alcohol soaked fruit left over to nibble. Mustn’t one?
Just keep this in mind when you are making this, the fruit is added to enhance, not to choke your yummy sangria!
Red vs White
Which sangria do you like better? Sangria made with red wine or sangria made with white wine?
I’m partial to white wine but if it’s wet, I will drink it.
Here’s the red sangria I like. I make it by the glassful so I can drink it right away instead of waiting a day. That means I muddle the fruit together to get the flavor crystals going!! It’s still delicious. Just like this white sangria. It’s just different. I do find red wine sangria a little heavier than this one. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. It just depends what you’re in the mood for.
Let’s get to the recipe. This chick is thirsty!
The Ingredients for the Fruity White Sangria and the Mixing
We have some Sauvignon Blanc and lots of fruits. What you don’t see is the apricot brandy, Cointreau and club soda!
I first start by washing and cutting up an orange, a lime, some strawberries and a peach! Then I add some blueberries and put the cut fruit into a 2 quart jar.
I pour the whole bottle of wine into the jar to meet up with the fruit.
I also add 1 cup apricot brandy and 1/2 cup Cointreau and 8 ounces of club soda.
Here we go. The jar is capped and ready to be put in the fridge!
Looky Loo, I see you
I let it sit in the fridge over night. Now, don’t keep opening the fridge to stare at the jar of fruity white sangria. It doesn’t make it steep any faster.
Ask me how I know!
Fast forward to the next day. I pour the contents of the jar into this lovely pitcher my sister, Robyn, gave me. Thanks Robyn! Kissy, kissy, huggy, huggy!
Now, to serve it!
I grab some tulip glasses and place some ice into them, along with some fruit.
Wait a sec, we need more!!
Pour, Christopher, like you have a purpose!
Blueberry coming in for the landing!
Time to garnish the fruity white sangria with a strawberry!
M-m-m-mmmmmm. Time to drink it all up! Like a good little doobie!
