Today, ladies and gentlemen, is a very special occasion. May 25th is National Wine Day. But it’s not like we really needed another excuse to enjoy a glass.
So in honour of this special day and the incredible summer weather that is finally coming our way the Yo Sox team wanted to share a simple summer cocktail recipe with you that infuses with you all of our favourite things: white wine, champagne, fresh summer fruit, and a few close friends to enjoy it with. All you need to do is get a bottle of white wine, some champagne and as much fresh fruit as you can find and you’ll be in for a very pleasant surprise.
-2 lemons, thinly sliced
-1 apple, cored and sliced (any kind)
-1 cup strawberries, hulled and sliced lengthwise
-1 (750 ml) bottle white wine (a dry-ish white wine is best, like Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay)
-1/2 cup champagne — No need to get fancy, any kind of bubbles will do!
-4 cups lemon-lime soda
-Add lemon slices to a large pitcher, then the apples, then the strawberries.
-Pour the wine and champagne over the top.
-Cover and place in the refrigerator for 4 - 5 hours.
-Remove from refrigerator and add the lemon lime soda. Add a few pieces of the fruit to your glass and pour sangria over to serve.
And, if you really want to get into the spirit of things, don’t forget to wear a pair of awesome socks while you make this delicious summer sangria. We’ve got on a pair of our funky champagne socks.
