bottle (750 ml) white wine or non-alcoholic white wine, chilled
cup apricot brandy, if desired
cans (12 ounces each) lemon-lime carbonated beverage, chilled
pint (1 cup) fresh raspberries
Lemon and/or orange slices, if desired
Place thawed raspberries in blender. Cover and blend on high speed until pureed. Press blended raspberries through a strainer into small bowl, using wooden spoon; discard seeds.
Mix raspberry puree, nectar, wine and brandy in 2-quart nonmetal pitcher or container. Just before serving, add carbonated beverage, fresh raspberries and lemon slices. Serve over ice.
You can make this recipe several hours ahead and refrigerate it, except don't add the carbonated beverage or the fresh raspberries. Add these ingredients just before serving.
Thread a couple of fresh raspberries on a toothpick for a quick and easy garnish.
Sangria was originally made with red wine and fruit juices. The Spanish word sangria refers to the blood red color of the beverage. White or blush wines offer a lighter version of this summer drink.
