I’ve recently served this sangria at a few summer events. It has gotten great reviews, so I thought I would share.
Sangria Blanco (adapted from the Food Network)
4 bottles Sauvignon Blanc
1 cup orange flavored liqueur (Triple Sec or Cointreau)
1/2 cup sugar
1 bunch seedless white grapes
3 lemons, sliced with rind
3 white peaches, pitted and sliced with skin
1 honeydew melon, in small cubes
1 liter club soda
Combine liquor, sugar and fruit together in a large pitcher or punch bowl. Let flavors blend for several hours. Add the club or seltzer water and serve over plenty of ice.
