How to Make White Sangria

Hi Guys!  Did your weekend fly by, too?  I can't believe it's already Sunday.

On Saturday night, we decided to have a few friends over to see the place.  I bought some super cheap citrus from a "Farmer's Market" in downtown Melrose.  I put Farmer's market in quotations because they were selling citrus there (I live in new England, so it obviously wasn't grown locally)  and it had stickers on it.  I heard from a friend that this "Farmer's Market" is run by a guy who buys produce wholesale and sells it cheap to the public.  I got 4 navel oranges, 3 limes, and 2 lemons all for $3 total.  Pretty good deal!

Since I had a packet of Sangria Mix, and a surplus of citrus fruits and CSA strawberries, it was obvious I had to make Sangria!  I usually prefer red Sangria, but the packet's recipe called for white wine so that's what I got.  It turned out awesome and it was a big hit at our little get together. 
White Sangria
3 Bottles Pinot Grigio
1 packet Sangria Peach Passion Mixer(If you don't have a pre-made packet you can use 2/3 cup of white sugar, and a teaspoon of cinnamon, or ginger ale/sparkling water works too)
2 nips Grand Marnier
2 Oranges
2 Limes
1 Lemon
6 Strawberries

I got this packet from Liz's wedding shower.  I couldn't wait to use it!

Gather the ingredients
I'm obsessed with these mini Grande Marniers. 
Slice all your fruit pretty thin:

Pour the wine into a large bowl and dump in the sangria packet/sugar/ginger ale and Grand Marnier, stir until dissolved, and add fruit!  Let it sit for a few hours before serving.

Enjoy with your lovely friends, Hi Meaghan!

 Now I'm off to clean up our apartment before going to Lunch with my family for Father's Day!
