Sangria is the smoothie world to wines, well sort of, in my world. Originally when I started tasting wines it was really bitter sour for my liking and the for a party someone brought a white wine sangria. This was an easy sangria recipe, Moscato white wine, finely diced apples, ginger beer, lychee juice (Ceres) mixed together with a few ice cubes and I drank it all down. The crunchy apples were a great surprise. Here’s a tip, if you soak the apples for a few minutes in the wine, it can give your tongue that surprise wine burst with every bite. Over the years I have tried a few different sangria, here are my 3 Easy Sangria Recipes for Busy moms who want to have that great dinner party.
