White Citrus Sangria

This recipe is from Michael Chiarello's show a few years ago. I recently made it for some girlfriends and it was as good as I had remembered it. I used kumquats and limes from our yard and didn't have a blood orange but it looks pretty if you can find one!

White Citrus Sangria (6 servings)

2 bottles pinot grigio
1 cup brandy
1/2 cup orange liqueur (I used Triple Sec)
1/3 cup sugar
1 orange, thinly sliced
1 blood orange, thinly sliced
3 kumquats, sliced
1 lime, thinly sliced

In a large pitcher, combine the wine, brandy, and orange liqueur. Pour in the sugar, stir or shake the pitcher thoroughly to mix. Add all citrus slices at once. Allow the mixture to sit for 1 hour before serving to allow the citrus flavor to come through. Serve cold (I chilled it in the pitcher and then served it over ice).


  1. I love sangria in the summer. I will definitely try it.
