After Spanish Red Sangria today I'm going to show you an equally tasty variant: the white sangria with martini. And I'll show you as fast as you do in this VIDEO RECIPE in 30 seconds. I prefer this recipe to the traditional one, because it seems sweeter and lighter to me. Obviously, it's white because instead of red wine you use a white wine. Also change the fruit: no longer red fruit but yellow or white pulp fruits like melon, fishing, white plum, Pera, lime, white grapes, lemon, Kiwi. In addition to wine and fruit, in white Sangria c’ even a vermouth. I used the white Martini. And finally the gazzosa, which decreases the alcohol content and makes white Sangria refreshing and sweet.
White Sangria ingredients with Martini
You can prepare white Sangria with a still wine or with bubbles, but if you prepare it in advance (how you need to), the bubbles will be lost. We used a collio doc wine. Custoza Doc is also perfect, Etna Doc White, Vermentino Doc, Trebbiano Doc, Gavi Doc or Pinot Grigio Doc.
Among the aromas of white Sangria with Martini cinnamon and mint, to get a fresher scent and taste. And if you love cocktails don't miss my beloved summer cocktail based on Campari, Prosecco rosé and berries. Even in this case, fruit must be present in good quantities, to give the cocktail its sweet and fruity taste characteristic.
If you prefer a less sweet drink, you can replace gazzosa with tonic water. If you love sweet cocktails and drinkers, add 30 grams of brown sugar. Always remember that sangria, both the red and the white Sangria, must be prepared in advance, so that the fruit macerating in alcohol yields part of its scents. And now I wish you good day!
FOR A LITER OF WHITE SANGRIA
500 ml of white wine (Collio Doc, Custoza Doc, Etna Doc White, Vermentino Doc)
350 milliliters gazzosa or tonic water
50 milliliters of lime juice
100 milliliters of white Martini
30 grams of brown sugar
lemon, peaches, white plums, melon retato or white melon, lime, Kiwi, Pera, white fishing
To prepare white Sangria with Martini all ingredients must be cold refrigerator. In this short video you see the order in which the ingredients are inserted: i also put ice to shoot the video, but since sangria needs to be prepared in advance, you have to add it just before you serve.
Clean the fruit and cut it into slices or cubes. Use mixed fruit, because different fruits give Sangria different nuances of taste. In a wide jug pour the fruit, then the lime juice, the white martini, white wine and gazzosa. Or tonic water if you prefer a drier drink.
Add the brown sugar (Optional, if you don't love sweetness avoid it) and mix carefully. Finally, add the fresh mint. Mix well with a wooden wand and place the Sangria in the refrigerator to rest.
Before enjoying it, add plenty of ice and mix well. Serve white Sangria with Martini for aperitif or even throughout the meal. Bon appétit!
