I just opened a bottle of white wine, and about half way through the first glass I realized it tasted salty. Salty! I poured a nip into a another glass to make sure it wasn’t some residue in my wine glass, but it was definitely the wine. It wasn’t a strong salty taste, but it was enough to make me not want to drink the wine straight. I hated the thought of pouring the wine out, since it wasn’t bad. Aside from the saltiness, all of the proper wine flavors were there. So, I made sangria.I used this Super Fruity Sangria
recipe as a guide, but substituted with ingredients I have on hand. Ahh, yes, this is much better.
Passionate White Sangria
1 750 ml bottle of white wine
1 12-ounce can of clear soda (Hanson’s strawberry kiwi, in this case)
1 6-ounce can of pineapple juice
1 lemon, cut into thin slices
1 lime, cut into thin slices
1 cup cantaloupe cubes
1/2 cup seedless red grapes
1-1/2 ounces cognac (brandy is classic, but mine is too harsh for this)
1-1/2 ounces passionfruit liqueur (such as Alize gold)
3 tablespoons sugar
Combine all ingredients in a pitcher. Stir well with a wire whisk to dissolve the sugar. Serve chilled.
