Welcome Summer with a White Tea Sangria

01 Apr 14  |  By Snigdha Manchanda


Instead of grumbling about the sweltering heat ( doesn’t every year seem to get hotter?), I  like to think of my favourite summer things… yeah like, breezy cotton dresses, mangoes and ice- cream ( and both together, yum) and chilled aam panna, and cold aamras with hot crispy puris ( heaven) and….. you get the drift. So, we decided  what better than to pack in some anti- oxidants and make a summer drink which is as delicious and refreshing. It simple and delicious plus if you don’t have all the listed fruit, don’t sweat, ( sorry couldn’t resist that one), do with at least  3 of them, and it will still taste great! Ingredients:

  •        2  oranges, halved and thinly sliced
  •        1 kiwi, peeled and cut into wedges
  •        1 cup seedless red grapes, halved or whole
  •        2 mangoes, cut into bite-size pieces
  •         20gms fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
  •        4 cups  brewed and chilled Tea Trunk Moon White Tea
  • 1 bottle  sauvignon blanc wine, chilled
  • 2 tblsps orange liqueur, such as Cointreau
  1.     In a liter pitcher, combine the  oranges, kiwis, grapes and mangoes.  At this point, stir in the wine and liqueur if opting for this version.
  2.      Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 6 hours.
  3.     Just before serving, stir in the strawberries.
Cheers to Summer!
