I'm not a wine drinker, but I do enjoy sangria in the summer! This is a nice, light and refreshing white wine version and a great patio drink; be sure to serve some of the drunken little fruits with each glass! Prep time includes "sitting time" of sangria.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup water
  • 14 cup sugar
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 1 cup fresh-squeezed orange juice
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle white wine, preferably a chardonnay
  • 1 small unpeeled apple, sliced in thin wedges (I like Pink Lady apples)
  • 1 orange, unpeeled and cut into 4 wedges
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • sparkling water, to top off glasses
  • ice cube

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, simmer together water, sugar and cinnamon sticks for 5 minutes; remove cinnamon sticks and let mixture cool.
  2. Combine juices and wine; stir in fruits and cooked sugar mixture; chill for at least 4 or 5 hours.
  3. For each serving, pour sangria over ice, top off with some sparkling water and add some of the fruit slices to each glass.

I made this for a barbeque last weekend. The only thing I changed was that I left out the banana and threw in a handful of raspberries instead. Everyone enjoyed. I had a little leftover--it was even better the next day.
