Last night, my friend Emily and I decided to make a THIRD type of sangria (Yes. I am a sangria fanatic). I used a white rioja along with some fresh squeezed OJ, apricot slices and raspberries. It was refreshing, fruity, and quite delicious. If you’re interested in a recipe for a traditional red wine sangria or a Sangria Blanca, look a couple of posts down.
White Rioja Sangria
1 bottle white Rioja
Juice from one medium orange
2 shots brandy
2 Tbsp sugar
3 apricots sliced
1/4 cup raspberries
1. Mix the orange juice, brandy and sugar in a container and blend until the sugar is mostly dissolved.
2. Add the wine and fruit and stir.
3. Serve over ice with a splash of sparkling soda.
