Happy Hour: Green Grape Sangria

When I saw this recipe for white wine sangria in the July issue of Gourmet magazine, I knew I had to make it. I wasn't disappointed when I did; this sangria is phenomenal.

It's fresh, fruity, and refreshing without being overly sweet. The mint adds an herby aroma to the wine, and the absence of fruit chunks makes for smooth, easy drinking. The recipe calls for Pinot Grigio, but I used a dry Riesling from Trader Joe's.

To learn how to make this divinely sip-able sangria,

Cooks' notes: •Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is also available in powdered form at pharmacies and natural foods stores. It will keep the sangria's color bright.•Sangria can be chilled up to 1 day.

This looks so pretty and yummy, but I had an appletini before I knew I was pregnant and anything to do with apple and liquer sounds gross.
