I’m a red wine girl! It’s not very often I have a bottle of Chardonnay in my fridge.

But when I entertain I am sure to have plenty of variety on hand.

After a summer dinner party, I had almost a full bottle of Chardonnay left over.

I confess. It’s just not my favorite.

I prefer a dry rosé or a Sauvignon Blanc.

But I hate to toss a perfectly good and expensive bottle of Chardonnay.

So this white sangria recipe was born and boy was it ever delicious.

With plenty of summer’s fresh fruits in my fridge, I thought of no better way to use up that bottle of Chardonnay.

I’m a big fan of elderflower liqueur and I’ll use it in place of simple syrup any day.

It adds a wonderful floral sweetness to so many summer cocktails.

HOW TO MAKE ELDERFLOWER SANGRIA

For this sangria recipe, I grabbed a few ripe peaches, sliced some sweet strawberries and tossed in some blueberries.

I mixed together Chardonnay and elderflower syrup or liqueur and placed this cocktail in the fridge to steep for about a half an hour.

A splash of club soda or sparkling water creates a spritzer style summer sipper that is refreshing and light.

It’s perfect for entertaining. Make a pitcher for a crowd or grab a glass for a single serving.

Not a Chardonnay drinker? This sangria is delicious with Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc.
