Starfruit Sangria

Star Fruit Sangria

What’s better in summer than some sangria? Pretty sangria! I think I saw a picture on the interwebs somewhere of someone using a starfruit in white sangria, which inspired this. The starfruit is interesting; it’s like a pineapple and a water chestnut had a baby. Or something. It didn’t have too much flavor but I did like its crisp crunch. Oh, and it’s prettiness. I don’t really care for dry white wines, but I wanted to try the Island Melon Malibu and I didn’t want a really, really sweet drink, so I opted for a bottle of 14 Hands Chardonnay.
