Honeydew and Pear Sangria

This summer wine punch subtly settles into your palate and draws you in with its soft fruity flavor for a light refreshing cocktail.

Honeydew and Pear Sangria

You can use any white wine, but I like mine with Riesling. And since I didn’t want the wine to be over powered by any strong fruit flavors, as so often happens with Sangria, I kept it on the quieter side by adding fruit slices at the time of serving for a lighter and crispier taste.

For those with a long Labor Day weekend-enjoy the extra day off! I’ll see you all tomorrow for some cookie goodness.
