White Sangria (Two Ways)
White sangria is mixed with either white wine or fruity wheat beer and white rum. The choice of sparkling water, fruit juice and sangria fruit is driven by the profile of wine varietal or beer style.
cocktail, Mixed Drink, Sangria
bottle white wine
fruit juice (OJ, peach, apple, etc)
fruit flavored sparkling water or sparkling lemonade/limeade
sliced/diced fruit as needed
Prepare the fruit of your choice. Wash and slice or dice and place at the bottom of a pitcher with about half gallon capacity.
Add the rum (if you want to chill it, use an ice filled cocktail shaker).
Add the juice and sparkling water. Stir.
Add the white wine or the wheat beer. If using beer be patient with the foam and let it settle. Stir.
You can serve immediately or let the flavors develop a little bit prior to serving (be sure to refrigerate if so).
Wheat beer has a much lower alcohol by volume (ABV) content than white wine so if mixing with wine consider increasing the amount of sparkling water (or sparkling limeade/lemonade).
