How to Make White Wine Sangria
A typical sangria is made with wine, sugar, a brandy or liquor, and a variety of fruits. This is a white sangria, since it’s made with white wine. Sweetened with the sparkling apple cider, and spiced up a bit with ginger beer. The reason that this version is a sparkling sangria is thanks to the bubbles from the carbonation in the sparkling cider and ginger beer.
