Impress girls and guys alike with your worldly cocktail repertoire at your next gathering with a crisp white wine sangria inspired in the flavorful Spanish original. Made with citrus slices, vodka, lemon soda, and dry white wine, white wine sangria is a refreshing summer alternative to heavier red-wine sangria.
