ϟ White Lightning Sangria ϟ

There are lots of different ways to make sangria. Red wine, white wine, pink wine; hints of vodka and brandy- someday I’ll try them all! But I was poking around the internet the other day and found a recipe for White Lightning Sangria; the name was too fun to pass up. I made up my own version of the drink for this post! As I’ve mentioned before in terms of punch, pre-mixed cocktails are perfect at parties. You control the quantity and quality of the liquor, your guests still get a buzz, everybody wins! Feel free to change up the fruit according to what you have/prefer. I think fresh berries in this would be amazing!

Sangria (adapted from Food Network.com, makes 6-8 servings depending on cup size)

– 1 bottle chilled white wine (the bottle of Sauvignon Blanc I used was on sale for $5.99 #class)

– 1/2 cup vodka

– 2 oz Grand Marnier

– 1/2 cup white grape juice

– 1/2 cup strawberry compote (or strawberry syrup)

– 1/2 grapefruit, sliced

– the other half of said grapefruit, juiced

– 1 green apple, sliced

– 1 lemon, sliced

– 1 orange, sliced

– seltzer or ginger ale

Pour wine, vodka, and Grand Marnier into a pitcher along with the fruit and juice . Chill for at least an hour, then add seltzer/ginger ale to your liking before serving (or add more wine woooo!). For an extra hit of lighting, sprinkle chopped pieces of crystallized ginger into each glass. Serve over ice if desired. ϟ
