What do you think of when you want a refreshing drink in the summer? How about a summer white wine sangria?
How do you make a summer white wine sangria? It’s easy and I’ll show you how to make this yummy summer drink.
Out by the pool. At the lake. On the beach. By the patio, the terrace, the piazza ~ or wherever you call your outdoor space.
It’s been a while since I shared a cocktail recipe with you, so with June almost halfway over, I decided it was time.
Since one of my very favorite books is But Mama Always Put Vodka in the Sangria by one of my favorite Southern writers, Julia Reed (I laugh myself silly reading her take on life in the South.), I decided that this cocktail was just the perfect one to cool you off.
(Unfortunately, Julia passed away a couple of years ago, but her humor lives on.)
I love sangria for its refreshing fruitiness, and I prefer white wine or rose for my sangrias. I think they are prettier and lighter than the traditional red wine sangria.
Sweet Shark found this recipe in the August 2015 issue of Cuisine at Home, a favorite magazine of mine for many years.
