White Sangria

OK, so it’s kind of a contradiction for a sangria, which is named for its blood-red color, to be made with white wine, but once you’ve tasted this festive thirst quencher it won’t matter a bit. Pieces of mixed summer melons are the perfect match for a crisp Sauvignon Blanc.

Serves 6

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups mixed colorful bite-size melon pieces, such as cantaloupe, honeydew, Ogen or Charentais
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 750-ml bot crisp white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 2 tablespoon Triple Sec, or other orange-flavored liqueur
  • 3/4 cup sparkling water, or club soda
  • Ice cubes
  • Lime or starfruit slices, for garnish
  • Small mint sprigs, for garnish

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Stir melon and sugar together in a large pitcher. Let stand for 15 to 30 minutes to draw out the juices.

Step 2

Just before serving, stir wine, brandy, Triple Sec (or other orange liqueur) and sparkling water (or club soda) into the pitcher. Add ice cubes to 6 glasses. Fill the glasses with the sangria, spooning some of the fruit into each glass. Garnish each drink with a slice of lime (or starfruit) and a sprig of mint.
