Hump Day Cocktail: White Sangria with Apple and MintPosted by: What The Flicka on August 7th, 2012
Here’s a perfect and refreshing summer cocktail we found while browsing Pinterest that is sure to get you through Hump Day! Sangria is perfect drink to make in large quantities like a punch for entertaining or just for sipping on the porch. We love using white wine and mint to add a slightly tropical feel to a warm summer day. Heres what you’ll need:
1 bottle of dry white wine, such as sauvignon blanc
1 cup all natural lemonade
1/4 cup triple sec
4 granny smith apples, thinly sliced
1 bunch of mint
In a large pitcher, combine white wine, lemonade and triple sec. Using a mandoline, thinly slice your apples and add them to the pitcher. The lemonade will help prevent them from turning brown. Also, depending on the size of your apples, you may not need to use all of them. It’s up to you. If you are making this in advance, chill in the refrigerator. Right before serving, toss in some whole mint leaves and give it a stir. Fill individual glasses with ice. Pour in some sangria and top off with club soda. Garnish with extra apple slices and mint.
