Summer is coming…be ready with some cool, refreshing white sangria! I found this Sour Apple Pear Sangria on Pinterest and quickly pinned it for future use…well, it didn’t take me long to go back to this pin and track down this delicious sangria recipe at My Life As A Mrs. What a cool blog!
Anyway, back to the recipe. I changed mine up just a little bit…I didn’t have apple vodka, so I added some appletini mix, and I think I got the same flavors going. I also doubled the pear nectar…I don’t know why…I just did. I love, love, loved this sangria! It was light, a little bubbly (which I really liked) and refreshing. It’s perfect for any spring or summer gathering!
Sour Apple Pear Sangria
- 1 bottle dry sparkling white wine
- 2 12 ounce cans pear nectar
- 1/2 cup vodka
- ½ cup appletini mix used: Rose's Cocktail Infusions Sour Apple mix
- 1/3 cup simple syrup*
- 1/3 cup lime juice
- For the Garnish:
- 2 pears sliced (used: Bosc)
- 2 limes sliced
- 2 green apples sliced (used: Granny Smith)
- Combine the Sangria ingredients in a large pitcher and stir well. NOTE: Be sure to pour the sparkling wine in slowly or the fizz will bubble up and overflow! Add sliced fruit setting aside a few rounds for garnishing the individual glasses. Refrigerate for a few hours, until chilled.
- Pour over ice in individual glasses and garnish with remaining fruit slices.
- *Simple Syrup is a mixture of equal parts water, equal parts sugar - You melt (via microwave safe dish in the microwave or a saucepan on the stove) until the sugar is completely dissolved and no longer cloudy. Allow to cool and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
