I’m not a big fan of red wine (even though I know it’s the better option), it tastes bitter and sour to me. But I love the idea of sangria and wine soaked fruit! So I’ve altered a sangria recipe to fit my tastes and without the the lemon lime soda the original recipe called for.
2 organic lemons, thinly sliced 1 organic apple, cored and sliced 1 cup organic strawberries, hulled and sliced lengthwise 1 750 ml organic white wine (I used a pinot grigio, but chardonnay would work if you like it) 1/2 cup white rum (bacardi style, not captain) 3 cups Topo Chico (or some other boring brand of sparkling water)
Add fruit to a large pitcher. Add wine and rum. Cover and refrigerate for 4-5 hours. When ready to serve add sparkling water, pour into glasses and serve. Remember to add some fruit to each glass.
