Strawberry Citrus Sangria

I know I just did a sangria last week, but this one is a white-grape wine based sangria, so it’s a little truer to the traditional, since last week‘s featured a berry based wine.

I really find that sangrias are fabulous for not only entertaining, but also the day after you’ve opened a bottle of wine and you still have some wine leftover, if you’re looking to make just a drink for yourself or you and one other person. (In my case, this was the wine leftover from when I made that white wine cranberry chicken!) So, this one will be for just 1 serving of sangria.

In a sangria glass, put 2 strawberries and some lemon slices. Pour about 3/4 cup of dry white wine over the fruit, along with 1 ounce of triple sec and 1/4 cup Dole Strawberry-Orange-Banana juice. Put this in the fridge and let it soak in for at least an hour!

After this has fermented for a bit, add ice and 2-3 ounces of a clear soda, like sprite. Enjoy immediately 😉
