White Sangria

 

 

The summer was halfway over when I finally had my first glass of white sangria at a local Boston bar.  And sadly, when I ordered a second glass, the waitress informed me that they had run out.  So what’s a girl to do but concoct a pitcher of white sangria the following weekend?  This was literally a game of “Let’s Check the Liquor Cabinet” followed by “Let’s See What’s in the Fruit Basket”.  The final game was the most difficult: “Let’s Wait For the Flavors to Blend”.  We lasted about 30 minutes before glasses were poured.  It was really hot out!  Here’s the final recipe:

4 c. white wine (nothing fancy, the kind from a box)
1/2 c. triple sec
1/4 c. brandy
2 c. club soda
1/2 cantaloupe, peeled and diced
1 ripe necatrine, pit removed and diced
1 ripe plum, pit removed and diced
1 tray ice cubes

The sangria was light and refreshing, and the perfect way to kick off a summer evening.  Cheers!
