Remember every day is Earth Day! This sangria naturally creates an earthy green color after a couple of days. Therefore this can also be a St. Patrick’s Day drink.
Organic white wine*
Organic white rum
Organic Seedless cucumber (English or Persian)
Organic Green Grapes**
Organic Granny Smith Apples
Gingerale, tonic or soda
Get a container with lid large enough to hold sangria (but that still fits in your fridge). Clean all the fruit and slice in consistent size pieces. Add the sliced fruit, about one cup of rum and one full bottle of wine. Cover and put in the refrigerator for at least 48 hours. When ready to serve add the gingerale and stir. Transfer to a serving pitcher or punch bowl and have tongs or a ladle nearby for the fruit.
*I like to use a Moscato. If you can’t find organic look for made with organic grapes. If you can’t find that look for local to your area. They even make a sparkling Moscato which you could use in place of the gingerale or soda. Just make sure to have it chilled but don’t add until you are ready to serve.
**You can freeze the grapes after washing instead of adding right away. Add them when you are ready to serve and it helps keep the sangria chilled.
