5pm GF Sangria

**found in August 2012 Marie Claire Magazine

Be your own beach bar!  Unwind after a day in the sun and impress pals with a new wine from a fancy vineyard that's affordable ($8).

3 cups Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Sweet Red Wine (Mondavi Chardonnay is one of my favs!)
1 cup fresh strawberries, thinly sliced
1 Fuji apple, thinly sliced
1/2 cup fresh basil, stems attached
1-2 tbsp. Elderflower Cordial
Raspberry seltzer water to taste

Combine wine, fruit, basil and cordial in a pitcher, then refrigerate for 15 minutes.  Add seltzer and pic a garnish like lemon lime or whatever floats your boat.  Stir and serve.

Julie's fruit garnish suggestions:  Try a watermelon or pineapple wedge or a hearty slice of mango.

Enjoy!! xoxo Julie


  1. First tapas and now sangria - you've got me dreaming of Spain! Can't get back this year but I think at least I'll whip up a pitcher of white sangria this weekend!


Share your thoughts my Lovelies! I want to hear from YOU! xx
