Summer Fruit Sangria


A pitcher of sangria made with white wine, fruit, and liqueur will get the party started.


  • 6 cups assorted fruits (such as mango, pineapple, cantaloupe, and apricot), sliced or cut into chunks

  • ¼ cup thinly sliced peeled fresh ginger

  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups fresh basil or mint leaves

  • ½ cup orange liqueur, such as Cointreau

  • 1 bottle crisp white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)

  • Ice


  1. In a large bowl or pitcher, combine fruit, ginger, basil or mint, and orange liqueur. Mash gently with the back of a wooden spoon until basil is bruised and fruit releases juices. Add wine and lemon juice and stir to combine. Refrigerate 1 hour (or up to 1 day). To serve, fill eight glasses with ice and top with sangria.
