HAPPY HOUR: Summer Sangria

WHITE STRAWBERRY-LEMON SANGRIA

WHITE STRAWBERRY-LEMON SANGRIA

I can not wait to try this at a family barbecue or sitting on the patio on a hot summer night! Stealing this recipe from http://www.KITCHENTREATY.com and thought you all would love it!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced
  • 1 apple, cored and sliced (any kind)
  • 1 cup strawberries, hulled and sliced lengthwise
  • 1 750 ml bottle white wine (a dry-ish white wine is best – I like Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay)
  • ½ cup white rum
  • 4 cups lemon-lime soda

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Add lemon slices to a large pitcher, then the apples, then the strawberries.
  2. Pour the wine and rum over the top.
  3. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 4 – 5 hours.
  4. Remove from refrigerator and add the lemon lime soda. Add a few pieces of the fruit to your glass and pour sangria over to serve.

**Freeze strawberries and lemon slices in an ice cube tray for a unique touch
