Tutorial Tuesday: Summer in Paradise with White Sangria & Prosecco Perfection. . .
What could be more simply delicious for that late July heat than a frosty pitcher of White Sangria? Perfect for summer BBQs or that late afternoon get together with your neighbors on the front porch, this cocktail is yummy, ice cold, and full of fruit & fabulousness!
6 cups Sauvignon Blanc (you don't need anything too pricey here, since you are mixing in all of that fruit, juice, & sugar, something simple and friendly on the budget will do just fine.)
1/4 cup superfine sugar
1 cup white grape juice
1 orange, thinly sliced
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 cup white grapes, skewered on a toothpick
1 cup club soda
In a large pitcher or other container, combine the wine and sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the remaining ingredients, excluding the club soda, and mix well.
Place the pitcher in the refrigerator and let the sangria sit for at least 1 hour (and up to 4 hours). The sangria will sweeten with time, so the longer it sits, the better.
Just before serving, stir in the club soda and ice cubes.
So simple & so satisfying too. Enjoy!
