Friday Night “White Lightning” Sangrias

This is a great little recipe for a white sangria- made with white wine instead of the traditional red. It has a lighter, fruitier flavor and looks gorgeous in the pitcher! Feel free to experiment with your own fruit and liquor add-ins!

Here’s what I did:


1 bottle dry white wine, chilled (I used Riesling)

1 c. white grape juice, chilled

1/2 c. mango juice, chilled

2/3-1 c. Bacardi rum

1/2 sliced fresh or canned pineapple (and its juice)

1/2 c. red grapes, halved

1 green apple, thinly sliced

1/2 c. granulated sugar

Ginger ale or club soda (for topping off glasses, if desired)

Mix together the wine, rum, grape juice, and mango juice in a large pitcher. Gently stir in the sugar until dissolved. Add the pineapple, grapes, and apple slices and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Fruit will separate into layers in the pitcher.

Upon serving, top each glass off with ginger ale or club soda, if desired. Garnish each glass with pineapple or apple slice.
