arnold palmer sangria



I love a good sangria, even with my allergies to red wine (We're talking itchy palms and coughing! Yes, I suffer for a bit of boozy refreshment.) So when finding this recipe while browsing FoodNetwork.com, I was very excited. I love the combination of iced tea and lemonade (hello, Arnold Palmer!) and then, with a bit of citrusy pinot grigio thrown in, this becomes a lovely grownup bbq drink. 


Arnold Palmer Sangria
slightly adapted from Food Network.com

2 cups sweetened iced tea
2 cups lemonade
2 cups pinot grigio
1 lime, thinly sliced
1 lemon, thinly sliced

Combine the iced tea, lemonade, and pinot grigio in a large pitcher. Add the lemon and lime slices and chill for two hours. Serve chilled over ice.

  3. Looks great! I've never been a big fan of Sangria because red wine makes me turn red myself and then fall asleep within a few sips. This sounds like a yummy replacement!

  4. i would have made one last night- it was a non-humid, gorgeous, atypical, august evening in new jersey- but alas, no ingredients, except a lime. so i opened a bottle of moscato d'asti instead...

    bottoms up!
