Pear Sangria Recipe
Pears are a wonderfully rich fruit of summertime. Not too long ago having a pear in the winter was a sign of luxury! If you can find it, there's even a delicious pear liqueur - Poire William - from France which would make this sangria recipe extra decadent. The bottle has an actual pear grown inside it.
If you do not have access to pinot grigio, any crisp white wine will do.
2 750ml bottles Pinot Grigio
2 Tbsp lime juice
1 2 liter bottle Ginger Ale
Chop the pears into 1" cubes.. Mix together the white wine, pears and lime juice until well mixed. Refrigerate overnight.
The next day, add in the ginger ale. You want to add this in last so the bubbles do not all go flat. Serve from a large pitcher or bowl filled with ice. If you have spare pears, you can toss in some frozen pear cubes at this point to serve as natural ice cubes.
To turn this into a single-glass sangria recipe, a typical assumption is that one 750ml bottle of wine yields four large glasses of wine. Divide all ingredients shown by four. If you're making just one glass worth you probably don't want to wait for the overnight soaking. If the mixture doesn't soak, you just won't get as much of the fruit / berry flavors permeating the sangria.

Note: I created these sangria recipes and have had them online for years. If you find similar sangria recipes elsewhere, it's because someone copied my idea. I do appreciate it when visitors write in to warn me about the plagiarism - but usually there's not much I can do about it! What's really funny is when they copy my design right down to my sangria pitcher. That's a bit much :)
