A good friend of mine just moved into a home with the largest apricot tree I have ever seen. I decided to help her out by taking over 10 pounds home to play with. The earliest creation? A white sangria kicked up a notch with random ingredients from my kitchen. Hope you enjoy!
2 bottles of cheap, but good, white wine. I used a new Lambrusco Bianco from Trader Joe’s for $3.99
1/2 c sugar
1 c brandy
2 oranges, 1 sliced, 1 juiced
1 Tahitian Vanilla Bean, split
6 apricots, cut in 8ths
1 lemon, sliced
1 grapefruit , sliced (excessive rind removed)
1 lime, sliced
Combine alcohols, juice, and sugar, stir to dissolve. Stir in fruits and let sit in the fridge for 2 hours (well try). Pour over ice and top with club soda.
