White sangria with mango, peaches, and lime.
1 bottle cold white wine (I used pinot grigio)
1 1/3 cups lemon-lime seltzer
1/2 cup gin
1/3 cup orange juice
2-3 peaches, diced
1 mango, diced
juice of 1 lime plus another lime sliced for garnish
and a couple tablespoons finely chopped mint.
Add everything to a pitcher and stir. It'll be best if you let it sit for a few hours or even overnight, so the fruit gets nice and boozy, but if you can't wait that long, it's just fine to drink right away.
This month's recipe is inspired by Frank Ocean! Are you a fan? Everyone I know is flipping out over the R&B singer/songwriter's first proper album channel ORANGE, a perfect summer soundtrack. In "Sweet Life" Ocean sings about "mangoes, peaches and limes," so I decided to make a beverage that will go down as smooth as Ocean's voice.
