Happy Hour: White Sangria


After years of enjoying classic red version, it came as a shock, the first time I tried white sangria. It had never occurred to me that the Spanish party beverage could be even more imbibable when made with white wine. It was a groundbreaking moment, much like the time I realized gazpacho came in the color white, too.

Just as its red counterpart takes advantage of robust orange and apple flavors, the delicate, slightly-more-refreshing white sangria does well capitalizing on fleshy Summer fruits, like peaches and mangoes, especially if you're using a crisp white with fruity aromas, like the Côtes de Gascogne I employed recently. (Note that just about any seasonal fruit, from white nectarines to blackberries, would do well in this drink, too). This recipe makes a lot, but beware: you'll have reached the bottom of the pitcher before you know it.

Oh, but it IS appetizing. Just served it at a big barbecue this past weekend. We substituted Cointreau for the brandy (one vote for, one vote against). It was absolutely delicious and refreshing. We, too, used regular sweet basil, as Thai basil was not available in the supermarket. Will definitely be making this again!
