Ingredients

  • 750 ml bottle Sauvignon Blanc
  • ½ cup St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
  • 20 oz canned lychee in heavy syrup, drain but reserve syrup
  • ¾ cup reserved lychee syrup
  • 2 limes, sliced thin
  • fresh lychee, to garnish

Instructions

  • In a large pitcher combine Sauvignon Blanc, St. Germain, drained lychees, ¾ cup reserved lychee syrup and thinly sliced limes.  Cover and let chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours to allow flavors to infuse.  (Allowing sangria to chill overnight is best.)
  • Stir before serving. Serve chilled, with ice if desired. Garnish with fresh lychees.

Notes

  • Look for canned lychee with minimal ingredients. It should just be: lychees, water, sugar.
  • Fresh lychees are available at Asian supermarkets. They are often at Trader Joe's- however they will be twice as expensive.
