Cocktail Hour at Pinterest

This week I took to Pinterest to find an interesting cocktail and appetizer to make this weekend.  Enjoy!

Sangria Bianca - Adapted from Refinery 29

For 1 large pitcher:
1 white peach
1 white nectarine
2 oranges
1/2 pint strawberries
1 bottle torrontes (or any non-oaked white wine)
1/4 cup rose infused simple syrup

1.  Slice the peach and nectarine into eighths or tenths, depending on size.

2.  You can do whole slices of the citrus, but I prefer cutting supremes, so you can eat them after the fact. For the uninitiated, supremes are when you slice off the skin, and slice between the white membranes segmenting the fruit.

3.  Halve the strawberries.

4.  To make the syrup, combine 1/6 cup sugar and 1/6 cup water. Add the petals of one small very perfumey rose (I had some in the house) or a 1/8 teaspoon rosewater. Bring to a boil, and let it sit for 10 minutes to steep.

5.  Add the syrup and wine to the fruit, and let the mixture sit in the fridge for a few hours to combine.

6.  Pour and enjoy.
