Sangria for me was always the red variety, which I find okay, but once I discovered a white sangria, I was much happier. Again it is lighter than its red counterpart.
Around us there are a few Spanish tapas places where I like to eat with my friends, and a White Sangria is something that is always ordered first.
I love to serve it with ice, as I love it to be really cold, just add ice cubes to your glass and top up with the sangria. You could add the ice to the punch bowl, but I find it will melt and weaken the flavour of the sangria.
Also have teaspoons around so your guests can get at all the infused fruits.
You can experiment with your favourite fruits, I love grapes and blueberries also with the apple. You can use fresh or frozen berries, just know frozen blueberries for instance, as they defrost will change the colour of the sangria.
This is a great party drink, just serve it up in jugs, and let your friends enjoy it.
Makes 1 jug

Place the fruit in a large jug or bowl, top with sparkling wine, apple juice and orange liqueur. Refrigerate for 1 hour to allow the fruit to soak. Top with soda water, ice and garnish with mint leaves. Serve in simple glass tumblers.
