When lounging by the pool, or by the beach…or by both at one time, (you better have a cocktail In hand!) my absolute favourite cocktail of all time is the white wine sangria!
I think it should be mandatory that when you’ve positioned yourself water side, to really enjoy the experience to the fullest you need a cocktail in hand, a particularly handsome pool boy and an endless supply of sun.
As you know, my favourite place in the world is Bali. This is where I have been lucky enough to try some of the most exquisite, delicious and bizarre cocktails EVER! (Please note their liqueur levels differ somewhat to ours here in Australia and apparently 1 shot equates to about 3….or 5 of theirs….) Whether that is a bad or good thing is up to you, however we don’t mind it so much here at Laine HQ ;).
When we are organising gatherings we have a go to white wine sangria recipe that is always an absolute winner! If you want to make sure its as good as we say you really need to make it yourself!

♥ Allow sangria to sit and let chill for at least 2 hours – if you can leave it longer that’s ever better! This allows all the yumminess to infuse into the best and most amazingly wonderful tasty white wine sangria
