White Sangría

I was born and raised in Caracas, where the influence of Spanish cuisine, especially Galician, Basque and Catalan, was a constant. So, for me sangría (literally bleeding) or zurra, as they call it in Ciudad Real and Toledo, in Castile-La Mancha, was always red, as indicated by its name... until I moved to Miami.
Made with red wine, some fresh fruit and a dash of brandy, sangría is the perfect summer punch. Each restaurant has its own recipe and everyone choose the fruit they want. That is the beauty of sangría.

Some people make sangría with white wine and cava (the Catalonian sparkling wine). I've had it mixed with fruit juices such as passion fruit and the truth is that it is delicious!

Although I admit that my favorite is still the red one, white sangría is super popular here in Miami, especially among women. The recipe that follows is a delight. It was send to me by Gallo Family Vineyards in California, along with a bottle of Moscato wine.

Happy weekend!
