White Wine Sangria

This drink is easy to prepare, light and delicious for the summertime. It goes well with food or can stand alone. A plus is that unlike its red partner, this sangria does not need to sit overnight to blend the flavors. It's a great alternative to a traditional red sangria-perfect for the 4th of July, Independence Day!

1/2 cup thinly chopped pineapple
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup diced mango chunks
1/2 cup raspberries
3/4 cup peach schnapps
1 bottle Sauvignon Blanc (Vinho Verde would be a nice & sweet alternative)
Seltzer water (for Sauv Blanc)
Sugar, to taste

Place fruit in large pitcher. Pour peach schnapps over fruit and muddle slightly with a large spoon.

Pour white wine over fruit (if using vinho verde, this is an effervescent wine and should be added a short while before serving...muddle the fruit A LOT in this case).

Refridgerate sangria at least one hour.

Taste sangria before serving, add sugar if needed (about 1/4 cup).

Scoop a little fruit into each glass.

Top with ice cubes and pour sangria over ice.

Splash a little seltzer water over sangria.

Serve with a straw, and a fruit garnish.
