Easy white sangria

A pitcher of sangria is a great refreshing drink to share with friends now that we're able to enjoy each other's company again.

And the great thing about sangria is that it's so much lighter than drinking wine - good news if we've got lots of get-togethers planned to make up for lost time.

The addition of elderflowers gives a nod to our seasonal spring flowers that are now in full blossom.


2 bottles white wine
300ml ginger wine (we used Stone's)
80ml elderflower cordial
4 limes thinly sliced into rounds
3 peaches, sliced
large handful raspberries
1l sparkling water
elderflowers (optional)


Put all the ingredients (except the ice, water and flowers) into two large jugs and put in the fridge for at least 1 hr to chill. Just before serving, top up with the ice and water. Pop a few elderflowers in the jug, if you like.
