White Wine Sangria
Hungry and I aren’t big drinkers. Hungry especially isn’t. I enjoy a glass of wine here and there, but nothing over the top. In fact, I often forget to drink. It’s a weird way to put it, but there it is. However, we both enjoy a good sangria. What is a sangria? Traditionally, it’s a red wine mixed with fruit, spices, and another drink. However, since expanding from Spain and Portugal, sangria creativity has taken off! Get us at an Italian restaurant with some beautiful antipasto and a wonderful main course and we will finish a whole carafe of the stuff.
The sangria I’ve prepared for you today is white wine-based instead of red. It’s different from the traditional, but it’s honestly quite delicious. I love playing around with different ways to make my sangria even to the point where I’m not quite sure it can be called a sangria anymore.

It’s the perfect drink on the weekends whether you’re at a picnic in the park or curled on the couch with your partner. My favorite bit is how the fruit soaks up the alcohol by the end of your drink. The bite of fresh fruit infused with wine really hits it home for me. Try to vary it up and use different fruit from time to time! And as always, stay hungry and fit!
