I thought I would share the drink of choice at my last girls night- white wine Sangria!! Also introduce my new feature: Tipsy Tuesdays- which should be self explanatory!
This was super tasty and perfect for sipping away while snuggling on the couch, chatting, watching movies and generally having a girls night. (AKA eating chocolate while we talk our faces off)
This was super simple and non specific, I looked up the general ‘How to Sangria’ and then just improvised from there.
These were the ingredients used:
1 bottle of white wine I used ‘ Lake and River 2011 Moonlight White’ which claims to be ‘an easy sipping wine that pairs well with good friends, long weekends and romantic dinners under starry skies’ -I’m sold
Slightly less 7-up than wine – alternatively use Sprite or Fresca or any generic citrus soda
2 shots of Triple Sec– this was a slightly random addition, I think it was supposed to be Cointreau- use anything for this or omit
Lotsa cut-up fruit & ice– I used orange, grapefruit and pineapple, because that is what I had- I actually used frozen pineapple pieces instead of the ice.
Mix ‘er all together in a pitcher or large bowl (you can smoosh the fruit a bit so it adds some lovely juices to the drink!) & serve into large glasses, making sure to get some of every fruit into the glass!
MMMMMmmmmmm – no girls night is complete without some Sangria!
