For about 7 glasses you need 1 bottle of dry white wine, 1 sprig of rhubarb, strawberries, 1 lemon, fresh mint, 1 bottle of sparkling mineral water, and 100 grams of sugar (unrefined).
– Heat 2 dl of white wine with half of the diced rhubarb and half a lemon juice until it simmers. Turn off the heat and add half the mint, infuse for 30-45 seconds, and then remove.
– Strain the mixture into a bowl and add the remaining wine and rhubarb as well as the strawberries cut into small pieces. Put it in a cool place and let it macerate for several hours.
– Serve the spring white sangria in glasses with ice cubes, top with sparkling water (50% sangria 50% sparkling water), and garnish with the remaining mint.
Tip: For a stronger sangria add a dash of raspberry or apple brandy.
