For those that don’t know me well, they might be surprised to find I’m a beer drinker. Aside from my obvious like of the taste, the carbonation is another reason I find beer so refreshing. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy a nice glass of wine so when the opportunity to try the new Turning Leaf by Fresh wines became available through Mom It Forward. Refresh tastes great and is fizzier than regular wine but less filling than beer or a calorie-laden cocktail.
Without being a wine drinker, I was incredibly eager to try out two of the new Refresh by Turning Leaf wines – Crisp White and Red Moscato. Refresh is also available in Moscato and Pink Moscato. I headed over to my friend and fellow blogger’s house, Melissa from Keeping Up With the Rheinlander’s, to Refresh It Forward and enjoy this refreshing beverages with some girlfriends. Prior to this week, I’ve never had sangria. Gasp, I know. But these slightly fizzy wines were the perfect base for this Texas Sangria Wine Recipe – a light, fruity, and refreshing summer beverage!
- 1 bottle pinot grigio
- 1 bottle red moscato
- 1 orange sliced
- 1 Granny Smith apple sliced
- 1 peach sliced
- 1 lime sliced
- Mix all ingredients together in a pitcher.
- Refrigerate for 3-4 hours.
Serve over reusable ice cubes so it's not watered down.
After trying out the Refresh by Turning Leaf Wines with fresh fruits in this delicious sangria recipe, I’m now in love with sangria. I can’t wait to try this again as a light and refreshing summer beverage with family and friends. This is something that’s nice and light without being too filling or crisp and could work for so many different occasions.
