Sangria Saturday!

We have friends over fairly often for games and snacks, usually on Saturday afternoons. Sometimes we make sangria, which makes those Sangria Saturdays! I prefer white sangria because it is more refreshing than red sangria, although we have also served red wine punch at parties, too.

We started with a recipe from the New American Bartenders Guide, and after making it according to the recipe the first time, we have adapted it to our tastes. The original recipe calls only for sliced oranges. We use a combination of citrus fruits and apples, but have also used nectarines, too. I think strawberries would make a great addition, although I haven't tried that yet. I have had white sangria with melon in it that was very good.

Chill the wine and club soda. Make a simple syrup and allow it to cool. Juice the oranges, lemons, and limes.

Mix the juice, wine, and triple sec.

Slice up fruits and add them to the mix.

Add the club soda just before serving.
