Day 29 of our 30 Cocktails in 30 Days Challenge: the White Sangria.
It’s always the hardest thing to do when you’re in a restaurant or out with friends to go past this Spanish punch. We really enjoy the red sangria but thought we’d like to give the white version a whirl. I must say, the result was a very pleasant surprise.
The dry white wine is a good base for this party drink. It mixes well with the sweetness of the Cointreau and peach schnapps. The brandy gives the sangria some character, and the ginger ale and lime cordial layer over the top of everything to make sure you enjoy every drop of this great drink.
How to make the White Sangria
Here’s what you need:
For a jug of sangria
- 3 cups of white wine – that’s about a bottle
- 1/3 cup of Cointreau
- 2 measures of peach schnapps
- Single measure of brandy
- Single measure of sugar syrup
- ½ measure of lime cordial
- 1 cup or a top in each glass of ginger beer
- Tinned peaches and orange slices to garnish
- Carafe and jam jars
Here’s what you do:
- Drain the peaches and put them, the orange slices and the ice in the bottom of the carafe.
- Pour the wine, then Cointreau, peach schnapps, brandy, sugar syrup, lime cordial and a touch of ginger beer on top.
- Put ice and some of the fruit into the jam jars.
- ¾ fill the jars with sangria then top them up with ginger beer.
