Rainbow Sangria

We can't express how excited we are to go to the various Labor Day parties we have lined up this weekend! Nothing beats a BBQ with friends; even if it means it's the end of summer. 

This year the drink of choice is Rainbow Sangria. 


Here is how to make it.

Ingredients

  • 1 refrigerated bottle dry white wine
  • 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar or honey
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 8 cups diced rainbow fruit (*see below*)
  • 2 oz. brandy 
  • 1/2 cup club soda or ginger ale 
Method
Combine wine, sugar/honey, lime juice, brandy, club soda, and stir until combined. Then add the fruit in the various colors. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes to let the flavors meld. 
The Fruit 
To make a rainbow of fruit, you will need bite-sized fruit in the following colors. 
  • Red: strawberries, raspberries, pomegranates
  • Orange: mandarin oranges, any other kind of orange/clementine wedge
  • Yellow: fresh (not canned) pineapple
  • Green: kiwi, green grapes
  • Blue: blueberries
