Sangria Recipe. White Sangria Variation

Sangria is a delightfully spicy and refreshing wine drink

It is a great party treat, and great sangria is an immensely popular conversation piece.

At the risk of bragging, I must tell you all what I’m always told: Sorry guys, my Sangria recipe is the best, period!

You have guessed it: I recommend my sangria wholeheartedly!

 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups very strong hot tea (green, black, red, white), decaf OK
  • A dozen cloves
  • 5–6 cinnamon sticks
  • A few pieces fresh ginger
  • 1 dozen peppercorns
  • 2 bottles dry red wine, chilled
  • 1 12-ounce can frozen pineapple juice concentrate with no sugar added (or any other juice concentrate, or lemonade concentrate)
  • 1 each: orange, green apple and lemon or lime, cut into medium-thin half slices

Instructions

Mix the first set of ingredients in a teapot, and let it steep and cool completely. Strain the mixture into a large pitcher. Add the wine, juice and fruit. When your sangria mixture is all ready, taste to see if you like it sweeter and add a little honey, sugar, or even juice concentrate. Keep the sangria chilled. No ice. Serve with some of the sliced fruit in each glass.

Variation: White sangria 

Green tea, dry white wine, light-colored juice concentrate just as apple, orange  or pineapple (no cranberry, red grape, or pomegranate). Proceed just as above.

Makes about 12 cups
