Ingredients

  • One bottle of light white wine, such as Broadbent Vinho Verde or the Cantine Giacomo Ascheri Moscato d’Asti
  • 3 cups of light lemonade *
  • 2 ounce vodka (unflavored)
  • 1 ounce of Agave nectar
  • Sprig of lavender (optional)
  • 1-1 ½ cups of fruit such apples, pears, kiwi, lemon, honeydew and star fruit

Directions

Pour vodka and sweetener into a pitcher and stir. Add fruit and let it sit for a few minutes while you measure out the juice. Add lemonade and bottle of low alcohol white wine. (Note – If you use a sweeter wine, such as a Riesling or Moscato, you should decrease the amount of sweetener you add.) Stir. Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour. Serve over ice. Be sure to get some fruit in the glass. Garnish with a slice of fruit and/or a sprig of lavender. *As an alternative to store-bought lemonade, you could make your own fresh squeezed lemonade. To keep it light, use minimal sweetener (to taste) – natural sweeteners like agave syrup are preferred.

Sangria Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Sangria Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
