Sangria and summer entertaining go hand-in-hand, yet many sangrias are dark because they feature red wine and rum. That is not the case with Nolet's Silver Sangria. If you are in the mood for a light, refreshing twist on an old favorite, this may be the punch your party needs.
The beauty of this Silver Sangria recipe is that it has a white wine and gin base, which creates a lighter flavor foundation than most sangrias. When white grape juice and fresh grapes are added, it becomes a delightful punch and one that all of your guests will love.
Mixing up this sangria is very easy and it should take just a few minutes of your time to prepare the night before your party. It will make about 13 4-ounce servings, which is perfect for a small gathering, particularly a casual brunch.
1/2 cup sugar
1 (750-milliliter) bottle dry white wine
1 cup gin
1/2 cup white grape juice
1 cup sliced seedless grapes
1 medium apple, sliced
2 cups ginger ale, or club soda
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
In a pitcher, dissolve sugar in the white wine, gin, and grape juice.
Add grapes and apple slices and chill overnight.
Add ice and top with ginger ale or club soda just prior to serving.
Serve and enjoy.
- The Gin: This Silver Sangria recipe was designed specifically for Nolet's Silver Dry Gin for a very good reason. This gin has a softer profile than the traditional London dry gin that we're used to. It is less juniper-forward and has more focus on floral notes. It is a gin that vodka lovers will enjoy because it doesn't have that piney aspect that some drinkers find unappealing with gin. This profile also makes Nolet's the perfect base for the softer flavors of this sangria. It is a complement to the light, white fruits and that combination is what makes this recipe stand out.
- The Grape Juice: Since we are going with a floral gin and a dry white wine, your average purple grape juice is not the best option for this recipe. Instead, look for white grape juice, which has a lighter flavor and is not as sweet as the darker options.
How Strong Is the Silver Sangria?
Nolet's is a higher-proof gin than average and is bottled at 47.6 percent ABV. If we use an 11 percent ABV wine in this sangria recipe, it has the alcohol content of around 11 percent ABV (22 proof).
As you can see, once we add the juice and soda to the mix, it is no stronger than the wine we used. This is great news because it keeps this sangria in the 'nice and gentle' range of punch recipes.
