Sangria is very easy to make, because you can use (or leave out) any ingredients you like. My Spring Sangria is no different! Feel free to change the recipe to suit your tastes!

Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle white wine (like Pinot Grigio)
  • 1 oz. triple sec
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • splash of pineapple juice
  • 1-2 each lemons, limes, and oranges (sliced)
  • small bunch (10-20) grapes

Combine all ingredients in a pitcher and stir well until sugar is fully dissolved. Serve into wine glasses 1/2 to 3/4 filled with ice. Garnish with extra fruit.

Note: Use more or less sugar depending on your tastes and the wine you use. (Most rieslings will require little or no extra sugar, while a sauvignon blanc may need more.)

Ways to switch it up:

Use rosé instead of white wine.
Use frozen grapes instead of ice cubes.
Use ginger ice cubes. (Make them by steeping a piece of fresh ginger in hot water, then freezing the ginger water into ice cube trays!)

Cheers to Spring!
