White Wine Sangria

TGIF, time to relax with a nice cold drink.  How about a White Wine Sangria?  I'm not a red wine drinker, but you can certainly make this with any red wine you enjoy.  I decided to use a Riesling for this sangria.  Riesling is what I drink most of the time. So when making sangria pick a wine that you enjoy.


Wine-Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay
2 cups of raspberries
2 apples cored and diced
1 cup pineapple chunks
1 lemon cut in wedges
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 liter ginger ale or club soda

Pour wine in the pitcher and add the raspberries, diced apples, pineapple chunks, lemon and sugar.  Mix well.  Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.  Right before serving add the ginger ale or club soda.  If you'd like to serve right away, use chilled white wine and serve over lots of ice.

Addition ideas: diced mango, sliced strawberries, peaches, handful of fresh blueberries, kiwi, a shot or two of gin, brandy or rum, a cup of citrus-flavored soda.

  3. Chiona, absolutely, choose a Moscato you enjoy drinking and use it instead of the Riesling.
