Summer Sangria

Sadly summer is almost over... but it's not too late to soak up the sun and enjoy some fruity sangria during the last few weeks of August! Here are two basic recipes, one for white sangria and one for red. Both are delicious and refreshing!

White Sangria

1 lemon
1 lime
1 orange
1 green apple
1 peach
5 strawberries
1 bottle pinot grigio
1/2 cup triple sec
3/4 cup orange juice
1-2 Tbsp. sugar (optional)
1 can ginger ale
Sparkling water or champagne (optional)
Fresh mint leaves

Red Sangria

2 oranges
1 nectarine
1 cup frozen raspberries
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 bottle red wine
2 Tbsp. GM, and/or dark rum
1/2 cup triple sec
1 cup orange juice
2 Tbsp. sugar (optional)
1 cup sparkling water or champagne


Slice fruit and place in a large pitcher or punch bowl. Pour in all alcohol and juices, except for the ginger ale and sparkling water or champagne. Refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours to allow the fruit to get soft and the flavours to develop. Pour in the ginger ale and sparkling water just before serving so it retains its carbonation.
