Yummy@Home White Sangria

white sangria
So I was told that I had not been doing many Yummy@Home posts lately.  Apologies!  For those of you in NYC - you know it's been so hot and muggy here that the thought of heating up the kitchen is a bit unbearable right now!

My apartment is tiny - as in the kitchen is part of the living room and I think I might suffocate if I were to turn on the oven right now.

Lately I have been just doing a lot of "non-cooking", i.e. "preparing" of food that can be eaten as is.  Lots of simple salads, tomato & mozzarella has become my new go-to lunch dish.  For snacks - you can't beat guac and chips!

To drink - nothing is better than a simple sangria!  And you can just easily make a pitcher and it will last you a week (if you are me and a lightweight).  To complement my red sangria recipe - here is a super easy recipe for white sangria - which I find to be a little lighter and more refreshing.

 Once again you can totally mix and match whatever fruits to your own taste.
  • Get a really fun pitcher (it always tastes better in a fun pitcher, hehe)
  • Pour 1 bottle of white wine (I used a $4.99 Mediterranean white wine from Trader Joe's)
  • 1 cup of lemonade
  • 1 orange cut into wedges - squeeze the juice and then drop in the wedges
  • 1 lime cut into wedges - same as above
  • 1 apple cut into small pieces
  • 1 peach cut into small pieces
  • a cup of frozen mangoes (again Trader Joe's frozen mango chunks)
Let it sit 24 hours before serving and  serve with gingerale or sparkling soda!
