Signature Cocktail #14: White Summer Sangria
By Lauren Kathryn on May 17, 2013 at 6:16 am in
A summer without a little sangria sipping is no summer at all. Our wedding wellness expert, Carlene Thomas of Healthfully Ever After, shares her low-sugar spin on this quintessential patio drink.
Sangria is the perfect drink for a crowd during the summer months. It’s easy to make by the pitcher, and the flavors only improve as it sits. While there are many sangria recipes that use red wine as a base, white wine versions are equally delicious, and there's no risk of party spirits being dampened by dreaded red wine stains. Pinot grigio is a sweet white wine, so you don't need to add sugar, which is called for in many other sangria recipes.
Ingredients (serves 1)
♦ 5 ounces of pinot grigio
♦ 1 ounce of peach schnapps
♦ Apples, cubed
♦ Strawberries, sliced
♦ Red grapes, cut in half (and some rolled in sugar for garnish)
Chill pinot grigio for several hours. Add 1 ounce of peach schnapps to a glass, add chopped fruit, and pour wine over top. Roll three whole grapes in honey and then sugar to skewer for a garnish.
Note: To make a pitcher, add 4 ounces of peach schnapps and two cups of chopped fruit to a pitcher. Pour wine over the top and place in the fridge until ready to serve.
