Is there ever a bad time for Sangria? I think the answer is no. It might be the middle of winter, but there is plenty of fresh citrus that you don’t have to wait until Spring to take advantage of. Whether you need a beverage for the Super Bowl, a drink for your Oscars Party, or something for a weekend brunch, every occasion is the right time to enjoy this beautiful and refreshing Blood Orange White Sangria.
Here is more on the recipe Sally made.
Like most Sangria recipes, this Blood Orange White Sangria is based on fruits, wine, liquor, and a sweetener. For this recipe, you will need blood oranges, nectarines, a cara cara navel orange, starfruit, lemon, and lime. For the liquid components, Sally decided to use white wine, Solerno, honey, and Peychaud’s Aromatic Cocktail Bitters.
Assembly is pretty easy, just wash and dry the fruit and cut into pieces. While someone is prepping the fruit, another person can mix the other ingredients together into a large container. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
