Nothing like a fruity glass of sangria while kicking back on a warm evening. This white sangria gets its Greekiness from Metaxa, a Greek brandy, and the sweet addition of apricot nectar.
Greek White Sangria
2 (750ml) bottles dry white wine (such as chenin blanc or Chardonnay)
½ cup orange liqueur
½ cup Greek brandy (like Metaxa)
1 cup apricot nectar
½ cup superfine sugar
2 cups club soda
Fresh mint sprigs
1. Combine wine, liqueur, brandy, apricot nectar, and sugar in a large 4-quart glass jar. Mix until sugar is dissolved. Stir in sliced fruit.
2. Refrigerate sangria for several hours until well chilled, preferably overnight, for flavors to blend.
3. When ready to serve, stir in club soda and mint sprigs.
Makes 12 cups

We’re gonna sip our sangria while listening to Athens-based artist Nalyssa Green.
