Tastes “ok” provided it’s painfully cold and the temperature outside is over 100 degrees.

Outside those parameters and you’re on your own.

White Sangria

White Sangria, originally uploaded by Squidly.

1 large orange, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
1/2 cup orange juice
1 large lemon, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
3/4 cup fresh blueberries
3-4 large strawberries, sliced thin
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons Triple Sec
2 tablespoons Cointreau
1 (750-ml.) bottle fruity white wine (Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, etc.)

Drop fruit in large pitcher, and sprinkle sugar over top. Add orange juice. Mix with a large spoon.

Add wine, Cointreau, and Triple Sec. Stir well until sugar is disolved. Refrigerate at least a couple of hours. Overnight is best. as the flavor will develop and improve the longer it sits (although I find it hard to wait that long.)

Serve over ice!

This recipe lends itself well to experimentation – so don’t be afraid to add your favorite fruits.

Whenever I mix drinks like this, they end up tasting like straight whiskey with grit at the bottom.

You don’t want to know what my martinis taste like.
