White Wine Sangria

I had supper last night with a bunch of wonderful girls, and tacos were on the menu. I wanted to make some sangria because let's face it, girls love sangria. At least this girl does! I found a new "recipe" on Pinterest and decided to try it out. In the most literal sense, I believe what I made is not actually sangria. However, it tasted amazing, was a huge hit, tasted amazing, looked pretty, and tasted amazing. What's not to love?

White Wine Sangria
1 bottle (750 mL) white wine...I used Pinot Grigio, but I think Sauvignon Blanc would be great, too
3 cans Fresca...I could only fit two cans in the pitcher I used, but it turned out fine
any variety of fresh fruit...I used two tangelos, one lime, and a container of raspberries

Mix all ingredients together and serve.

Done! Doesn't get much easier than that! I mixed everything together in the pitcher and let it sit in the refrigerator for several hours. I like for the ingredients to get to know each other for a while; everybody's happier that way. The Fresca wasn't real fizzy after sitting out but it didn't affect the taste. If you want a fizzier drink, you could let the fruit soak in the wine for a while and pour the Fresca in at the end.

Most important step: You absolutely must eat the fruit when the pitcher is empty. That's an order. The boozy fruit is the best part, and don't you forget it!

Easy, tasty, fun, and pretty...that's my kinda beverage :)

    Glad to see you are well and have survived the storms. Enjoy your Sunday and be safe.

  2. Thanks a bunch, Annesta! We're too far east to have been affected yesterday, but we're supposed to have storms tomorrow. I hate tornado season :( Thanks for checking in, and I hope you have a lovely week! Praying for you!
