This past weekend we were delighted to be a part of the annual Wedding Show up at the Wadsworth Mansion in Middletown. As part of our offerings we served a Winter White Sangria, and boy was it a hit! Sangria is, in many ways, the alcoholic equivalent to cooking from the pantry. You never have to follow a recipe, and often times the best concoctions are made up on a whim. Our recipe is below, but remember - improvising is encouraged!
Winter White Sangria
1 bottle chardonnay
1 bottle sauvignon blanc
1 bottle chablis (yes, they still make this!)
1/2 cup of simple syrup
1 cup brandy
2 cups apple juice
1/2 cup orange juice
juice of one lime
2 tbsp honey
Sliced Pears, Apples, and Grapes
Now, prepare yourself for the super complicated method:
1. Combine all of the above in a large jug.
2. Let sit overnight (preferably). Before serving, give it a try and make sure it doesn't need a bit more of this or that.
3. Consume with friends. Don't forget, the fruit is the best part!
