Spring Sangria

Spring sangria

I tried the most delicious white wine sangria the other day at a local restaurant and it immediately inspired me to recreate it at home. This sangria is so light and fruity and complements my shrimp ceviche and mango avocado salsa topped tilapia so well. This drink will definitely be my drink of choice for entertaining this spring.

Spring Sangria
Makes about 8 servings

1 bottle (750 ml) pinot grigio
1 can of sparkling orange flavored water
1 cup orange juice
1 small granny smith apple, sliced thin
1 small orange, sliced thin
1 tbsp agave syrup
12 mint leaves

1. In a glass pitcher, add in agave syrup, 3 orange slices and mint leaves. Mash the mint leaves into the agave and orange slices with a muddler to release the flavor of the mint leaves.
2. Pour in the rest of the oranges, apples, orange juice, pinot grigio and sparkling water and stir to combine.
3. Serve over ice.
