Sangria Blanca with Summertime Stone Fruits

What a perfect cocktail for summertime entertaining. Stone fruits - peaches, plums and nectarines - are a great addition to this fruity, white sangria. What I love about sangria is its beauty, taste and versatility. While there is a lot going on in sangria, the finer notes of the wine will get lost so I’m using a reasonably priced wine. You might be familiar with the “two buck Chuck” from Trader Joe's called Charles Shaw. It costs about $2 a bottle. I’m using their Pinot Grigio, but any white wine will work. There are no rules for making sangria as long as you add generous portions of fresh fruit. If you like a sweeter mixture, add some sugar. If you like more citrus, add lemon and lime slices or some orange juice. I’m adding diet 7-up to make it bubbly but you can also use club soda. Just keep mixing and tasting until you’re happy with the results and be sure to make twice as much as you think you’ll need! Each serving, 133 calories and 0 fat.
