It’s almost 5 p.m. You’re expecting company. And you’re faced with a decision that could make or break your evening: Wine or cocktails? Well, dear friend, with our recipe for white sangria, you get the best of both drinks in one pitcher. To start, we freeze fresh peaches and raspberries, then combine the fruit with white wine, peach juice and orange-flavored liqueur. Instead of becoming diluted by ice cubes, the sangria will just get more flavorful as it chills, thanks to that frozen fruit. Bonus: This concoction is totally white-jeans-friendly.
