Sangria, White

In which I make a double batch of sangria

Sangria is essentially fruit salad that has been marinading in wine and liquor overnight. It's fantastic for a hot summer day, or when you've got way too much fruit on your counter and you've already had enough fiber for the day.

Back in college we had a penchant for those giant $10 jugs of sangria. Those aren't good and if you have any self-respect you won't drink that garbage... But I digress. Let's make a double batch since we're having company over.

Ingredients:

  • 2 bottles of dry-ish white wine (Spanish or Portuguese is best)
  • 1/2 cup orange liquer (I had to use a mix of ‎curaçao and Grand Mariner because I was almost out of curaçao)
  • 1/2 cup rum or brandy
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • Sweetener to taste (I used agave syrup)
  • 2 peaches
  • 1 apple
  • 1 orange
  • 1 lime
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 container of blackberries
  • 1 handful of strawberries
  • A big pitcher
  • Sparkling water

Tasks:

  1. Cut the fruit up:
    • Peaches and apples into chunklets
    • Orange, lemon, and lime into thin quarter moons
    • Strawberries into thin slices

  2. Toss all the fruit into the pitcher

  3. Pour all the booze and orange juice into the pitcher and stir
  4. Add sweetener to taste
  5. Throw the concoction into the fridge overnight
  6. Pour into a pint glass, cut with 1/3 sparkling water
