#DRINKRECIPE - White Wine Sangria

#DRINKRECIPE - White Wine Sangria | Food & Wine | Scoop.it

But that's about as sweet as I can do with wines. Sangria is usually too sweet for me. I love the fruit, but the drink itself gives me a headache. That being said, this white sangria is my perfect summer wine drink." http://buff.ly/15DTM8k
