Cocktails Anyone? White Sangria!

Traditional Sangria is made by soaking a mixture of fruits in red wine overnight and serving it chilled.  I love the red Sangria but in the Summertime, I like to mix it up with a white Sangria.  Here is a recent version I threw together to enjoy with my husband!

Southern Summer White Sangria

2 sliced peaches
1 sliced navel orange (leave the peel)
1/2 sliced lemon
1/2 sliced lime
1 sliced nectarine
1/2 cup raspberries
1 bottle white wine (I used Savignon Blanc)
Lemon lime soda or ginger ale

Soak all the fruits in the wine in the refrigerator overnight.  (The longer it sits, the more intense and delicious the flavors, and ours kept for about a week).  When ready to serve, pour the Sangria over ice and some soda or ginger ale, making sure to get some of the fruit in the glass.  Serves about 6 large glasses.
