Pear Ginger White Sangria

There aren’t many days left for drinking light, chilled sangria like this pear ginger white sangria. The weather hasn’t changed completely here in Denver, but as always, I know it’s coming.

It always sneaks up on me before I think I’m ready.

So I’ve been soaking up the sun as much as I can before I have to start dressing in layers and boots (not that I’m complaining…

I bought these boots on sale this summer and am dying to bust them out!). I went boating on Monday for the afternoon and for some reason all I was craving was sangria. I just wanted to be sipping something light and slightly fruity while I attempted to sunbath (i.e. don’t burn and somehow get some color, it never happens for a pale girl like me).

Though I’ll be entering fall without a tan, I can at the very least fulfill my sangria-dreams.

This pear ginger white sangria is just the right sangria to close out summer with. It’s not a sweet sangria that’ll make you feel like you’re drinking syrup.

Instead it’s bright and fruity, with just a little hint of ginger to tickle your taste buds. It’s insanely drinkable, which is both a very good and very bad thing. Making a double-batch of this could get you into trouble if you aren’t careful… 😉
