Hello and good morning! Anyone feeling like some sangria? I am! I made this a couple weeks ago and it was a-freaking-mazing. I popped over to Kim’s site at Tranquil Dreams and checked out her white wine sangria recipe, then I perused the web a little and then I figured out what I could do with what I had on hand and then presto changeo – this is the recipe that I ended up with. If you’re more into red wine, check out my Red Wine Sangria recipe.
- The juice of 5 oranges – slice up half of one and put it in the sangria to make it look pretty.
- Whatever fruit you have on hand (except banana – I don’t think that would be very good). I used apples, pears, nectarines and kiwis.
- White wine. I used a box (because I’m classy like that) of sauvignon blanc. The rest of the ingredients are based on how much wine I used. This recipe is good if you are having a lot of guests over and they are all drinking sangria. If it’s just a couple people, cut the recipe down accordingly.
- 2 cups of bourbon.
- 1½ litres of Sprite or 7 Up (or any lemon/lime soft drink)
- Mix all of the above except your soft drink together. SIDEBAR: Do you guys call soft drinks pop? Because here in Canada, it’s called pop but I heard somewhere that everywhere else you use the term soft drink (which we also use here but it sounds odd and strangely formal when people say it).
- Let your sangria sit in the fridge overnight. This is the most important step. Don’t skip it.
- Add the soft drink (pop) before serving.
