This summer is just flying by and I haven’t had the chance to post any yummy recipes in weeks. Things have been a little hectic but I finally got to take the edge off with this white sangria – it’s light, citrusy and perfect for summertime! Generally, I am not a huge fan of white wine but the fruit in this sangria adds so much flavor, making it pretty much irresistible. Note: Many people add brandy or even a bit of rum to sangria so if you have any on hand, go to town!

•1- 1/2 cups seltzer water or club soda
•1 lime, sliced
•1 peach or nectarine, chopped
•1 green apple, chopped
• 1 cup grapes or blueberries

Throw fruit into a large pitcher, followed by wine and seltzer water. Add honey if desired and stir. Refrigerate for at least two hours. When ready to serve, top off sangria with ice. Enjoy!
