If you're looking for a healthy cocktail, this looks divine!


Strawberry Basil Sangria
from treehugger.comsangria
Ingredients
½ lb of fresh strawberries
1 apple
1 ounce of fresh whole basil leaves
1 bottle of Cline Cellar's Cool Climate Chardonnay
½ cup organic sugar
1 cup of club soda

1 cup of white grape juice

Instructions
1. Trim and thinly slice the strawberries.
2. Slice and dice the apple into very small bits.
3. Score the basil leaves with a fork (instead of cutting the leaves into strips as you do not want guests choking on basil while trying to enjoy this drink). Simply just rub the basil leaves gently with a fork in order to release their flavor in the sangria.
4. Layer the fruit, sugar and basil in a large pitcher and let sit for about 10 minutes. This is just to let the sugar absorb the juices from the basil and the fruit. You'll see it turn a bit red.
5. Add the club soda first and then the remaining liquids. Stir well and serve.
