Does anything say ‘summer’ quite like sipping a glass of delicious sangria? I think not! Not only is sangria so easy to whip up, but it’s also a great drink to serve to guests — especially at the last minute. And you can still make it even if you only have white wine on hand, hence the white sangria! We added a fun twist on this classic recipe though — burnt sage syrup! It definitely adds a really delicious herbal flavor to the mix that is unexpected and fun.
