Use a crisp, fruity white wine --instead of red -- such as Grüner Veltliner, Sauvignon Blanc, or Pinot Grigio to make our lighter take on the classic Spanish cooler.

Ingredients

  • 3 x 3 Inch-long cinnamon sticks
  • 1 x 8 Ounce can pineapple rings, cut into pieces
  • 2 Kiwis, peeled and sliced
  • 1 Mango, ripe but still firm, peeled, pitted, and cubed
  • 5 Whole star anise pods
  • 1 750-ml bottle Sterling Vineyards Vintner's Collection Sauvignon Blanc
  • 1 Cup peach liqueur

Preparation

Step 1:

Toss together the cinnamon, fruit, and star anise, and place the mixture in a pitcher. Pour in liqueur and wine and combine. Let the sangria sit in the fridge for at least 2 to 3 hours and serve cold. If desired, add ice before serving.
