Grapefruit White Sangria
Sadly, summer is coming to an end, and the LMP ladies and I are mourning the upcoming loss of sunshine and beach weather. But we aren't quite ready to give up our summer-style cocktails!
I decided to use up some of the grapefruit we had left over from our MZ Wallace party, where I made a Ruby Red Grapefruit Gin & Tonic, and make a super simple sangria! This Grapefruit White Sangria turned out way more delicious than I could have imagined!
Here's what you need: -fresh grapefruit -fresh limes -white wine -vodka -ruby red grapefruit juice -sparkling water -fresh mint -sugar
Here's what to do: 1) In a pitcher, combine sliced grapefruit, sliced limes and cut up pieces of mint. On top of fruit, add 1/4 cup of sugar.
2) On top of the fruit and sugar, add 3 oz. of vodka, a bottle of white wine and 1/2 cup of ruby red grapefruit juice. Stir gently.
3) Top off your pitcher with sparkling water. 4) Let pitcher of sangria sit in the fridge for an hour or so to let flavors combine and chill.
Pour, and serve! This refreshing cocktail is a perfect way to toast the last few days of summer, and cry a little bit. Just kidding...
Until next week... Cheers!
