White Sangria with Ginger and Basil

Adapted loosely from Every Day Food (July/August 2010)

I know, I know. Summer is over. We’re moving on to mulled cider and red wine. But when I still have so much basil around, it’s hard not to make just one more batch of this refreshing warm weather drink. I swear this is the last batch.

  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1 cup frozen sliced peaches
  • 1 750 ml bottle Sauvignon Blanc
  • 1/2 cup Triple Sec
  • 1/4 cup fresh ginger root, peeled and julienned
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed basil leaves
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and gently mash together with a wooden spoon to allow basil to release flavor. Let sit overnight. Serve over ice.
