White Sangria with Nectarines, Plums, & Lemons

Yum
White Sangria with Nectarines, Plums, & Lemons is the perfect summer sipper.  Whip up a batch and beat the heat!

White Sangria with Nectarines, Plums, & Lemons


Here's what I consider the perfect summer sipper!  White sangria, chock full of sweet, ripe nectarines, juicy plums, and fresh lemons ~ it tastes oh-so cool and refreshing on a hot summer day.  Oh, and did I mention the splash of rum?  Mmmm hmmm ... I think you're going to want some of this.

I made this White Sangria with Nectarines, Plums, & Lemons for a visit from two of my college friends.  Their first night here we reminisced about our college days, caught up about current life, and enjoyed this very scrumptious pitcher of sangria {~ it's so good it didn't last long, let me tell ya}.

Isn't it wonderful to catch up with dear friends?  Especially the kind of friends who, even though it's been several years since you've gotten together, the friendship flows on like you've been together every day.

The only down-side to my friends' visit was that it reminded me how I much I miss them.  Guess I just need to make sure I see them more often!

White Sangria with Nectarines, Plums, & Lemons comes together really quickly and easily.  Pretty much all you do is combine wine, rum, and a touch of sugar ...

... and then stir in some sliced fresh fruit.

Chill it, and add in a little seltzer just before serving.  That's it!

Grab a glass, pull up a chair with some great friends, and enjoy beating the heat with this delightful white sangria.

  5. Hi Tracey! I had saved your white sangria recipe at eRecipeCard earlier and didn't even realize it was your recipe! (I hadn't clicked past the delicious picture just yet and had just saved it in my recipe box to view later.) I just realized it was yours when you linked up! This looks delicious! We make a red sangria all the time but have been looking for a white recipe to mix it up! Thanks so much for sharing!

  11. Hm, I've never made sangria with plums and nectarines, but it looks great. I worked at an asian restaurant and we had a white plum sangria that had white wine, sake, peach puree, and some other fruit. You should try it, it was really good.
