“ Welcome summer with this fruity, tropical-inspired take on white sangria, soaked with sweet chunks of mango, peaches, mint, and a splash of Grand Marnier. Vijay, Recipe Hunter ”
The summer sun is poking its head through the clouds and as backyards everywhere are firing up their grills for BBQs, cookouts, and picnics, that means it’s time for one thing – sangria! While there are countless variations of sangria using red wine and even sparkling wine, for something just as refreshing, try out a white sangria, which pairs extraordinarily well with the bright fruit of the season. Lauren puts a tropical spin on her version, using chunks of sweet mango and slices of fresh peaches along with a smash of mint for an herbal touch. Soaked in pinot grigio and spiked with orange-flavored Grand Marnier, this sangria is best served ice cold, preferably on a sunny patio with friends.
