How to make a White Margarita Sangria
Choose a pitcher and gather your ingredients.
You’ll need a bottle of white wine, a can of frozen limeade, tequila, triple sec, sugar, and fruit.
Slice the fruit and place it in the bottom of your pitcher. Pour the sugar onto the fruit, then lightly muddle the fruit and sugar together.
Next you’ll add half a can of lime juice concentrate, tequila, and triple sec. Stir the sangria until well mixed.
Pour a bottle of white wine (such as a sauvignon blanc or pinot grigio) into the pitcher, stir and refrigerate at least 4 hours, or overnight.
To serve the White Margarita Sangria, fill a large wine glass with ice. Fill the glass just over halfway full with chilled sangrita. Finally, top the sangria off with your favorite carbonated mixer. You can use sparkling water, ginger ale, club soda, or a lemon-lime soda for this sangria.
(Or, you can serve the sangria as is, without topping it off with carbonated mixer, if you prefer)
