3/4 cup white grape juice, chilled
1/2 cup sliced fresh strawberries $
1/4 cup orange liqueur

2. Sparkling Sangria Recipe:

1 cup cherries, pitted and halved
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries
1 cup quartered small strawberries
1/2 cup chopped nectarine
1/3 cup brandy
1 cup apricot nectar, chilled
1 (750-milliliter) bottle cava, chilled

Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large pitcher, and chill for at least 2 hours. Stir in apricot nectar and Cavar wine. Serve right away.

3. White Sangria Recipe:

White Sangria

  • 6 cups Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc
    1/4 cup superfine sugar
    1 cup white grape juice
    1 ripe nectarine, pitted and cut into thin wedges
    1 tangerine, thinly sliced
    1 cup seedless white grapes, halved
    1 cup club soda

  • Combine the wine and sugar in a large pitcher and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add remaining ingredients, excluding the club soda, and mix well. Place the pitcher in the refrigerator and let the sangria sit for at least 1 hour (and up to 4 hours). The sangria will sweeten with time, so the longer it sits, the better. Just before serving, stir in the club soda and ice cubes.
