Light + Fruity White Sangria
I don’t know about you, but I always start my weekends with a To Do list.
You know, for things like: organizing the closet, cleaning the inside of the refrigerator, writing overdue thank-you cards, and painting my nails. And about 50 other things.
I start out with good intentions, I really do. But then… I get distracted.
This weekend was no exception. It was sweltering in Portland. We were hosting some friends for dinner, and I quickly realized that a batch of cold cocktails was in order. I put together a large pitcher of white sangria, and let me tell you: it did NOT disappoint. Unlike some sangria recipes, this one doesn’t call for sugar or sweetener, so it’s fruity, crispy and very refreshing.
The best thing about recipes like this one is that you can totally improvise depending on what’s in season – or in your fridge. I added basil, peaches, strawberries, blueberries and orange watermelon from the Portland Farmer’s Market.
I love summer.
