Our local tv news runs a cooking segment every saturday morning. Today it was all about summer fruit sangria. She cut up the usual fruit, peaches, pineapples, plums, blueberries, strawberries and melon balls, and she put them in a huge, clear glass vase with a wide bowl bottom and a narrow neck. Then she mixed in a gallon sized pitcher, 1 can of frozen orange juice concentrate, 1 can of frozen lime aid, the juice and zest of 1 lemon, 1 bottle of pina colada mix, 4 cans of peach nectar, 1 bottle of white wine, 1 cup of vodka . Mixed it all together and poured it into the vase until the bowl bottom of the vase was full and gave it a stir. Then she topped it off with peach soda.
She said that the rest of the mixture could be added when the liquid in the vase was gone to keep the party going.
Have any of you ever heard of this combination?

I might have to try this, but instead of the pina` colada mix (hate coconut) I may use a margarita mix!!
What can be bad about fruit, white wine and vodka????

I had a really delicious white sangria at Mario Batali's celebrated restaurant Babbo in NYC a couple of years ago, but it was much, much simpler than all that.

I don't know the recipe, but the key ingredients were white wine, cut up ripe peaches, some blueberries. Not much more than that. I just remember it being a stunning and refreshing treat... it was complimentary!... after we had waited an hour in the heat to grab one of the 5 tables they make available without reservations at opening time.

Wow, that's alot of 'stuff'.

Like the previous post I've made really good White Sangrias with less ingredients and energy.
