Hot days call for cold drinks. It’s not rocket science.
I wish the weather was better in Ottawa these days…but it’s not. So when we get a hot, sunny Saturday, we milk it for all it’s worth. That means good tunes, cocktails and an unputdownable book.
We took a break from the slushy drinks this weekend and tried this refreshing white sangria. It’s delicious and nutritious, not to mention pretty. Loved adding apple!

- 500ml sparking citrus pop (7up or other)

- De-seed all the fruit and place in a pitcher with sugar and salt. Mash the fruit with a muddler. Add brandy and wine and stir. Refrigerate (ice can be added by the glass or directly in the pitcher).
