A close friend of ours got married recently and the bridesmaids were in charge of a small and cosy lunch reception. We planned the menu way in advance and that is when Jia and I jumped at the idea of concocting a light and refreshing alcoholic beverage for the celebration. Now, what is a celebration without some sparkly and fruity bubbly?
This Sangria recipe that we created a few years ago is our absolute favourite. It is sweet and tasty, looks fun and is so easy to put together that we often make the Sangria to share with friends and family or to pack into festive gift hampers for our clients. This white Sangria gets a ton of rave reviews and always hits the right spot!
Sparkly Fruity Bubbly White Sangria
Serves 4 or 2 major Sangria fans
1 bottle of good quality Chardonnay
1 can of ginger ale
2 medium red apples, cored and sliced
8 large strawberries
1/2 lemon, deseeded
1/2 Tahitian lime, deseeded
Place apples, strawberries, lime and lemon into a clean pitcher or bottle.
Pour the bottle of Chardonnay into the pitcher of fruits.
Refrigerate and let the mixture sit for an hour.
After an hour, take out lime and lemon.
Let the rest of the mixture infuse for at least a day in the fridge to release the full fruity flavour.
Add ginger ale and a squeeze of fresh lemon to the Sangria right before serving.
Serve chilled, with or without ice.

With Love, Min+Jia.
