Warm summer nights on the patio in the backyard are my favorite nights of all. Sometimes you want a cocktail to sip and enjoy that doesn’t take a ton of time or prep work. Fruity White Wine Sangria fits the bill wonderfully. Fruity and refreshing, it will carry you through summer laughing and chatting while you wile away the rest of the summer.
