Perfect Summer Sangria
We start with a dry white - some times you can find whites that have a slight sparkling quality these are perfect! The wine doesn't have to be a stellar bottle because it's just getting mixed.
Lots of fruit cut in bite size pieces. This has a mixture of chopped peach, nectarine, strawberry, raspberry & orange
Chopped herbs - it varries based on what is in my window box here we have mint and lemon balm
For a little sweetness some juice. This has a bit Red Jacket Orchards strawberry apply juice. Juice adds sweetness that compliments the wine but better than the 7-Up or Sprite.
Sometimes I top with a little seltzer, since this already had some bubbles from the wine we left this alone. I also will freeze the berries and add them at the last minute to help the mix stay cool.
One of the best parts is if you use good fruit it's a nice treat at the end of the glass.
Mix together with a tray of ice & serve!!
