Last week when we had dinner at my girlfriend's house, she made sangria, but a white sangria, as she knows I prefer white wine.
When I got home, it got me thinking about a sangria recipe that I had in my files. I haven't made it in a long time. However, with the heatwave that we're having, I'm going to have to locate a fruity white wine. By the way, my girlfriend was able to find a red wine sangria mix at the Wine Outlet in Manasquan. Recipe after the jump.
White Sangria - from Joshua Wesson
1 bottle of fruity white wine, such as Famega Vinho Verde 2001 or Las Brisas Rueda 2001
1 Granny Smith apple
3 tablespoons Grand Marnier
1-2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
6 ounces ginger ale or grapefruit soda
Pour the wine into a large pitcher. Wash the pear, apple, lime and lemon. Cut them into thin slices and add to pitcher. Add the Grand Marnier and the sugar. Marinate for few hours. (The sangria will taste better if you leave it overnight.)
When ready to serve, fill the pitcher with ice cubes, add the soda and stir well. Serve with a wooden spoon in the pitcher.
