Honey Ginger Sangria

    I have been making a lot of sangria this summer.  I love offering it as an option when I have people over because their faces light up every. single. time.  

Me: "What would you like to drink?"
Guest: "What do you have?"
Me: "Wine, beer, rum, vodka, sangria..."
::Guest whips head around like they can't believe their ears:: "OH YES! I'LL HAVE SANGRIA!!"

    Works every time my friends.  Anyway, the red sangria recipe that I posted has become one of my most popular posts to date, so I thought it was time to update you all on my other favorite recipe-- this time for white sangria.
white sangria recipe
Ginger Honey Sangria
adapted from BHG
1/4 cup brandy
1/4 cup orange liqueur
1/2 cup honey
1 1-inch piece fresh ginger, thinly sliced
1 orange, thinly sliced

1 lemon, thinly sliced and seeded 
2 750 milliliter bottles white wine
1 liter  carbonated water, chilled

In a very large pitcher combine brandy, orange liqueur, and honey; stir with a long handled spoon until honey is dissolved. Add ginger, fruit, and 1 bottle of wine. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours (overnight works too).

Just before serving, stir in other bottle of wine and carbonated water. Serve over ice, if desired.  Enjoy!

  1. Honey and Ginger are both GREAT for a cold, which I have... so for medicinal purposes I think I need this.
