Jasmine Ginger Cantaloupe Sangria

This delicious white sangria is sweet, floral, tangy and tart - ALL at the same time. It combines the sweetness of cantaloupe and the subtle floral taste of jasmine with the tangy and tart bite of ginger. It's perfect for a mild, spring day and just might become your new favorite sangria.

Jasmine Ginger Cantaloupe Sangria

• 1 bottle of white wine (I used Pinot Gris)

• 1 cup of triple sec

• 12 oz bottle of ginger ale

• juice from 1 cantaloupe*

• 1 cup ginger simple syrup**

• 1/3 cup jasmine flower water

• 1 lime sliced

• 1 kumquat sliced (optional)

• ice

• edible flowers and lime or kumquat slices for garnish

In a pitcher or glass serving container, combine wine, triple sec, ginger ale, jasmine flower water, cantaloupe juice, ginger simple syrup and fruit slices. Stir gently. Serve and enjoy!

* If you don't have a juicer, blend the cantaloupe in a blender on high with a tiny bit of water. Pour over a mesh strainer and retain liquid.

** For ginger simple syrup - Combine 1 cup of water, 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 lb of ginger in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium/high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer until sugar is dissolved. Cool completely before adding to sangria.
