White Sangria

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/white_sangria.html

From EatingWell:  July/August 2007

OK, so it's kind of a contradiction for a sangria, which is named for its blood-red color, to be made with white wine, but once you've tasted this festive thirst quencher it won't matter a bit. Pieces of mixed summer melons are the perfect match for a crisp Sauvignon Blanc.

6 servings, 1 cup each | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Stir melon and sugar together in a large pitcher. Let stand for 15 to 30 minutes to draw out the juices.
  2. Just before serving, stir wine, brandy, Triple Sec (or other orange liqueur) and sparkling water (or club soda) into the pitcher. Add ice cubes to 6 glasses. Fill the glasses with the sangria, spooning some of the fruit into each glass. Garnish each drink with a slice of lime (or starfruit) and a sprig of mint.
