3.) Tropical Summer Sangria

 

Ingredients

2 bottles of pinot grigio
1 ripe pineapple
1 can of peach nectar
1 ripe mango
A few fresh nectarines (or peaches)
Many sangria recipes sometimes call for brandy or other liqueur in them, but for a lighter more refreshing beverage, these ingredients are perfect.

Instructions

     1.   Dice the pineapple, peel the nectarines and the mango and dice them too. 
     2.   Save a few slices of pineapple for garnish.
     3.   Pour the chilled wine and peach nectar over a few scoops of crushed ice in a large pitcher.
     4.   Add the diced fruit.

Makes enough for 10-12 glasses.
Garnish with pineapple wedges and serve immediately.

Enjoy!
