Spring White Sangria

Welcome spring with this refreshing sangria, which combines white wine and passion fruit juice with grapes, pears and litchis, a delicately sweet fruit that originated in China.

 

Spring White Sangria

 

1 bottle (750 ml) fruity white wine such as Chenin Blanc or Gewürztraminer

1 1/4 cups (10 fl. oz./310 ml) passion fruit juice

1⁄4 cup (2 fl. oz.) fresh lime juice

1 cup (6 oz./185 g) white grapes, seeded and halved

1 cup (6 oz./185 g) Muscat grapes, seeded and halved

1 Asian or Bartlett pear, cored and thinly sliced

1 can (20 oz.) litchis with syrup

2 Tbs. chopped fresh mint

2 Tbs. chopped fresh dill

Ice for serving

 

In a pitcher, combine the wine, passion fruit and lime juices, grapes, pear, litchis and their syrup, mint and dill. Stir well. Refrigerate until chilled and the flavors have blended, about 2 hours.

 

To serve, pour the sangria into individual Collins or old-fashioned glasses filled with ice. Serves 6 to 8.
