White Berry Lemon Sangrias

When it comes to alcoholic beverages, I usually stay away from beer. It makes me really bloated and I cannot stop thinking about all the carbs. It really doesn’t take much to get me tipsy and I usually face difficulty finishing a pint. Then I realise sangrias are perfect!. Diluted by a carbonated drink, taste fruity and a little on the sweeter side, a drink cannot be more perfect than this. The thing is that, you can’t bring a pitcher when you’re camping. What’s a better way than to package them into mason jars?! Just pop the lid, add ice and your fizzy soda and you’re done!

White Berry Lemon Sangrias

Time: 10 minutes + 4hr soak time

Yield: 8, 500ml mason jars

Ingredients

  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced
  • 1 apple, cored and sliced (any kind)
  • 1 cup strawberries, hulled and sliced lengthwise
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle white wine (a dry-ish white wine is best – I like Sauvignon Blanc) (about 1/2 cup per jar)
  • ½ cup white rum, divided (1 tablespoon per jar)
  • Approx. 4 cups lemon-lime soda or sprite if you are really desperate

Steps

  1. Divide lemon slices among the eight jars, then the apples, then the strawberries and blackberries.
  2. Pour the wine (1/2 cup each) and rum (1 tablespoon each) into each jar, over the fruit.
  3. Cover each jar with a lid and screw shut.
  4. Place in the refrigerator for 4 – 5 hours, or up to 12 hours.
  5. Remove from refrigerator. Add ice and pour lemon-lime soda to the top of the jar. Plop in a straw and serve.
