Cinco de Mayo is next week and if you’re anything like us, your party-day plans will probably unfold spontaneously. That’s why we like this five-minutes-tops recipe for a simple sangria (that uses up the leftover fruit in the fridge, too). Just pour, stir, and fiesta like there’s no mañana.
1 bottle of white wine (Riesling, Pinto Gris, and Sauvignon Blanc work best)
½ liter of ginger ale
½ cup white sugar
Lemons, limes, oranges, strawberries, kiwis or any other fruit that will hold up well in a drink.
Cut fruit into thin slices and mix together.
Pour wine, ginger ale, and sugar into a pitcher. Squeeze juice from the fruit wedges into the pitcher, then toss in the fruit (pick out seeds if possible).
