My cousin, Jeff, is visiting us in Los Angeles and enjoying the cooler, drier climate. Last night he made this wonderful white sangria. It’s really refreshing!
My Cousin Jeff’s White Sangria
Serves 4 – 6
1 bottle white wine
4 oz light rum
1 cup orange juice
1 cup pineapple juice
A splash of soda, we used orange pineapple
2 tsp orange or lemon zest
2 oz simple syrup
Fresh sliced frozen fruit – peaches, oranges, apples, grapes – use whatever you like
To make simple syrup put equal parts sugar and water in to a pan and bring to a boil until the sugar is dissolved and cool (leftover syrup can be stored in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for 1 month).
Place all ingredients in a pitcher and stir to mix. Refrigerate and add frozen fruit to serve.
