White Sangria

Sometimes, Sangria sounds good... but then you start thinking... I'd prefer a white wine base instead of a red wine base.  (No?  You don't?  Oh!  Well I do!)

After enjoying a nice, sweet white sangria this past weekend, I thought I'd share an easy recipe that I discovered while dining at Disney's Beach Club Cape May Cafe!

White Sangria
1 shot of Peach Schnapps
Lots of ice
Fill with your favorite Pinot Grigio (Pinot Gris) or Chenin Blanc
Add an orange slice and some fresh raspberries, as well as a fun/crazy straw

Tell me this doesn't sound incredibly delicious while sitting outside reading your favorite summer book, watching the 4th of July fireworks, or simply enjoying a meal with your family (as we did).  :)  And, it's incredibly simple to make!  Plus, unlike red sangria, there's no wait time to enjoy it.  You can drink right after mixing.  Cheers!

  1. Sounds fun! This is the time of year I use up all the real fruity wines I've received as gifts. I make big pitchers of sangria loaded with fruit for cocktails before dinner on the deck. I need some fancy straws or some paper umbrellas!
