I know it’s not technically summer yet, but we’ve already had our fair share of 90-degree weather here in Dallas. When it gets that hot, you need something cold and refreshing to cool you off.  Joel and I were working in the yard last weekend and got really hot; at the end of the day after all that digging, planting and sweating, a nice tall glass of this sangria hit the spot big time! I love drinks like this because they’re so easy to adapt, depending on what you have in your kitchen. We had a tangelo (sort of a cross between an orange and tangerine- delicious!), an apple, some fresh strawberries and pineapple and limes. All you need is a couple of hours for chilling and you’ve got a totally delicious, refreshing sangria!

Sparkling Summery Sangria

1 bottle dry white wine (a Sauvignon blanc would be nice, or even chardonnay)
1 cup 7-up soda
1 tangelo or orange, sliced into thin rings
1 lime, sliced into thin rings
5 or 6 strawberries, hulled and cut into quarters
half an apple, cut into chunks
5 or 6 chunks fresh pineapple

Pour the wine and 7-up in a large pitcher and add the fruit. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.

*feel free to use any fruit you have on hand- this would be great with just about anything! Melon, peaches, blueberries…anything you like!

  10. This looks delicious! I’m gonna have to learn how to enjoy it in 50 degree whether, because here in NY, it won’t be 90 degrees until August!

  11. Made a version of this today and loved it. However, not sure what most people do with the fruit afterwards, but we made it into smoothies and loved it! Thx for the post!
