Summer is around the corner and all I can think about is sipping on sangrias.
Seriously – sweet, sassy, sippy sangrias are what summers are made of. And I’m super psyched for this one, because I’ve got this swell White Wine-Elderflower Sangria
recipe to use all season long. Yesssss.
I know you’re excited for summer too, so I thought I’d share the recipe because, ya know, no one wants to drink alone – at least not when sangria is involved. So pull up a chair, slather on some sunscreen and let’s make sangrias together!
First, make sure you have all the ingredients you need. The basic necessities include white wine and elderflower liqueur (which is oh-so-tasty, let me tell you). The club soda is also fairly necessary, and so is the fruit, but you can substitute lemon-lime soda or sparkling water for the club soda if you want. And, you can use pretty much whatever fruits float your boat – blackberries, blueberries, grapes and pear and green apple slices are my fruits of choice for both their flavors and colors.
Place all the fruit in the bottom of a very large, chilled pitcher. Pour the white wine and elderflower liqueur on top, then refrigerate the whole thing for at least 30 minutes (or until your guests arrive) to chill and settle.
Top the mixture with a few good handfuls of ice and enough club soda to fill the pitcher (or to taste… up to one liter works). Give it a good stir, then serve it up!
Mmmm, fruity, elderflowery, cocktaily bliss. Cheers, friends! What’s your favorite way to celebrate summer? Stephanie (aka Girl Versus Dough) is going for seconds. Check out Stephanie’s Tablespoon member profile and keep checking back for her own personal recipes on Tablespoon!
