Summer Sangria Combine 1x750 ml bottle dry white wine, 60ml Contreau, 250ml of lemonade in a pitcher or jug. Add sliced lemons and limes, nectarines, strawberries and mint leaves and stir to combine. Add crushed ice to serve. Note: an aromatic white wine such as riesling or sauvignon blanc would be great for this sangria

Refrigerate until chilled. Serve over ice.
Sunset Sangria. This turned out excellent! I would not "chop" the basil though -- it was too leafy and we ended up having to strain a lot of the basil out. I would just use the leaves for flavour as is.
