White Citrus Sangria

SangriaComplete2

I love white wine and sangria, and I've been dreaming up a yummy citrus sangria recipe to drink this spring/summer since the winter. I actually bought the wine for this back in April! Fresh fruit is abundant where I live now (yay for living by all the farms!) so I figured it was time to take advantage and really celebrate this warm weather!

Sangria Ingredients

What You'll Need
White Wine (I suggest a riesling or pinot grigio. I used Bota Box Riesling. Nothing too fancy for this!)
Lemonade (Simply Lemonade is great)
1 Lemon
1 Lime
1 Orange
1 Anjou Pear
Honey
Water

lemons Cut

First, cut all of your fruit up. Cut the pears into small cubes and the citrus into slices.

Fruit cut

Mix about 2 Tablespoons of honey with 2 Tablespoons of water to make it a little more pourable. Pour this over the fruit and allow to sit for an hour in the fridge.

Fruit in Pitcher

Place the fruit into a large pitcher, about 32 ounces. Pour wine so that it fills about 3/4 of the pitcher.

Sangria Wine

Fill the rest of the way up with lemonade.

Sangria and Lemonade

Allow to chill, then serve straight or over ice!

  1. Yum! This looks delicious! If you mix wine with a fruity seltzer water and frozen berries and watermelon - that is also pretty yummy! Love fruity/fizzy drinks in the summer. :) xo
