The fruit for the deadly sangria

If something happens two years in a row, does that equal a tradition?

I made sangria again for Louie’s birthday BBQ in the park and it is a hit every year. This year I added a new recipe to my arsenal and people thought it was tasty. I found it a bit on the sweet side, so if you like that kind of thing, by all means, sweeten it up. Next time I’ll probably take back the white grape juice a touch and add more club soda.

White Sangria Recipe – Inspired by Malo restaurant

  • 2 bottles dry white wine (I used a Chenin Blanc from Trader Joe’s $3.99 a bottle)
  • 1 1/4 cups Limoncello
  • 1 Granny Smith Apple – cored and sliced thinly
  • 2 nectarines – sliced thinly
  • 1 peach – sliced thinly
  • A couple of handfuls of red grapes – halved
  • White Grape Juice
  • 1 bottle Club Soda

Directions: Cut up fruit and put in the pitcher, add the white wine and Limoncello, chill for at least 2 hours.

Right before serving fill the pitcher with one part grape juice to one part club soda. Serve and watch your friends get nice and toasty.

It’s so easy, and such a nice summer drink. Too bad it’s not summer anymore.
