White Wine Sangria

A delicious alternative to red sangria, white wine sangria is light and refreshing.

In this recipe I pair a dry Sauvignon Blanc with orange and lime juice, club soda, ginger ale, a hint of Pimms No. 1 Cup, passionfruit and mint.

Pimm's is a favorite English alcoholic beverage usually consumed in summer. It pairs wonderfully well in this tropical white wine sangria.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh orange juice
  • 2/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 cups of club soda
  • 3 cups ginger ale
  • 2 x 750-ml. bottle dry white wine, chilled
  • 1/2 cup of Pimms No. 1 Cup (available from liquor stores)
  • 1 navel orange, cut into thin slices
  • 1 lime, cut into thin slices
  • Pulp from 2 passionfruit (or 1 small can)
  • A handful of small mint leaves
  • Serves 6-8

Preparation:

  1. In a large pitcher stir together citrus juices and sugar dissolved.
  2. Next add the club soda, ginger ale, wine, Pimm's, orange and lime slices, passionfruit and mint. Use a the end of a wooden spoon to give the sangria and gently stir.
  3. Add ice cubes and serve sangría chilled.
