Sweet Tea Sangria Ingredients
- Sweet tea: Any brand of sweet tea will work or you can make your own homemade sweet tea.
- White wine: The sweet tea will add the sweetness so opt for a dryer, crisp white wine such as a Pinot Grigio/Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache Blanc or a dry Riesling such as a French Riesling. If you’re unsure just go with the old adage, use what you like to drink, and a sangria doesn’t need a fancy bottle of wine.
- Fresh Fruit: This recipe calls for raspberries and peaches but the beauty of sangria is that many fruit combinations will work. Nectarines, plums, apricots and strawberries would pair well with this recipe in any combination that you prefer.
- Fresh mint: To garnish.
