grapefruit, minneloa, & strawberry sangria

Last summer my friend Leah made sangria for every dinner party we hosted. And that is where my love for sangria started. Since the weather was particularly warm this weekend and because I had some extra grapefruit, I decided to make a sweet and citrus sangria. It was refreshing and went great with some fresh guacamole I whipped up and our tacos.

2 Grapefruit
6 Minneola {a fruit that is a sweet mix of tangerine and grapefruit}
8 Strawberries
1 Cup club soda
1 Bottle of dry white wine
In a half gallon pitcher, add the wine, club soda, and juice of 1 grapefruit and 4 minneola. Slice the strawberries, cube the grapefruit and minneola's, and add to the mixture. Stir and let refrigerate for at least one hour.
To serve, fill two bowls, one with a little water and one with a little sugar. Take your cocktail glass, dip the rim in water and then sugar. Fill your glass with a few ice cubes and pour sangria in glass. Be sure to get a mixture of fruit as well. Enjoy!
* To make it virgin or kid friendly, replace the wine with white grape juice or both the wine and club soda with ginger ale.
