Spring White Wine Sangria

March 24, 2016

Another holiday is underway! We love the holidays. No matter what it is, Jesus is in the center of it all. He’s truly the glue that holds our family and friends together.

 

Entertaining guests is so much fun—and such a blessing. The look on their faces when they see all of the decorations and the dining table perfectly set is priceless. To top that there is nothing like filling up somebody’s cup with a refreshing juice or drink, especially if they come in a mason jars. I have been dreaming of making a Spring White Wine Sangria for quite a while. I knew I would have to make it a couple times before Easter so that I can get perfect pictures and become a pro for the real deal at our brunch on Resurrection Sunday.

 

 

Of course, I invited friends over a few times to enjoy this fine wine sangria. Once I got their stamp of approval and a double thumbs up, I knew it was holiday brunch worthy. It’s been getting hotter and hotter these days here in Florida, and; now that it’s spring, we need to keep ourselves refreshed. A batch of this Spring White Wine Sangria will keep you vibrant and peppy. You don’t want to have a heat stroke on Easter Sunday, do you? I sure don’t. Who doesn’t love sangria?

 

The tanginess of grapefruit really sparks up the bittersweet taste of are homemade Rhubarb Simple Syrup. We chose to go with sparking water instead of champagne because who wants to be bloated on Easter? We would much rather water down the alcoholic content than to enhance it with some more. If you want to make a fully non-alcoholic version, you can bet your butt that I came up with a way to substitute the white wine. That would only make it a “spring sangria” but I don’t think you’ll be complaining; plus, it will double up as kid-friendly.

 

 

That’s a win – win – win situation. But, I would much rather have mine spiked with delicious white wine so I can feel the vibes of our days spent in Tuscany. Sip, sip…ahhhhh!
