This delightful drink is perfect for summer, combining the flavors of fresh fruit with a clean, low-sugar white wine. It’s light, not too sweet, and wonderfully refreshing. Let’s dive into the recipe and get ready to toast to a great summer!


Ingredients and Their Health Benefits

Before we get into the recipe, let’s take a look at the ingredients and their health benefits:

  • Oranges: Rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, oranges boost your immune system and add a sweet, tangy flavor to the sangria.
  • Peaches: White peaches are a great choice for their firm texture and sweet taste. They provide vitamins A and C, fiber, and antioxidants.
  • Green Apples: These add a crisp texture and tart flavor, along with vitamins C and K and fiber.
  • Strawberries: Packed with vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants, strawberries add a burst of color and flavor.
  • Lime: Adds a refreshing tartness and is high in vitamin C.
  • Light White Wine (Avaline White Blend): A clean, low-sugar wine that keeps the sangria light and refreshing. Wine in moderation can offer heart health benefits due to its antioxidant content.
  • Peach Bitters: Adds depth of flavor without additional sugar or calories.
  • Bocha Sweet Sweetener: A low-carb, natural sweetener that doesn’t spike blood sugar levels.
  • Cognac or Brandy: Adds richness and complexity to the sangria. Cognac also has some antioxidants.

Recipe: Light Low Carb, Low Sugar White Wine Sangria

Ingredients:

  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 1 white peach, sliced (firmer is better)
  • 1 green apple, sliced
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • A handful of strawberries, sliced
  • 1 bottle of Avaline White Blend wine
  • A few shakes of peach bitters
  • 2 tablespoons Boca Sweet sweetener
  • 1/4 cup cognac or brandy

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Fruit:
    • Start by slicing up all your fruit. Slice one orange, one white peach, one green apple, and one lime. Also, slice a handful of strawberries.
    • Choose firm fruits for the best texture in your sangria. White peaches are preferable over yellow ones as they hold up better without getting mushy.
  2. Combine Ingredients in a Pitcher:
    • Add all the sliced fruit to a large pitcher. Fill it up to the rim to ensure a colorful and flavorful sangria.
    • Pour in the whole bottle of Avaline White Blend wine. This clean, low-sugar wine is perfect for a light and refreshing sangria.
    • Add a few shakes of peach bitters to enhance the flavor profile.
    • Stir in 2 tablespoons of Bocha Sweet sweetener. This natural sweetener will blend perfectly without adding unnecessary carbs or sugar.
  3. Add the Alcohol:
    • Finally, pour in 1/4 cup of cognac or brandy. This will add a nice depth and richness to your sangria.
    • If your pitcher is too full, you might need to transfer the mixture to a larger one to accommodate all the ingredients without overflowing.
  4. Chill and Serve:
    • Cover the pitcher and place it in the fridge for about 4 hours. This allows the flavors to meld and develop fully.
    • After chilling, give the sangria a good stir. Add some of the fruit to your glass along with some ice, then pour in the sangria.
    • Serve immediately and enjoy your light, refreshing, and fruity low-carb sangria.
