Zesty White Wine Sangria

White Sangria is very easy to make. With its citrus flavors, this is a bright pick me up between heavy foods or will make you feel refreshed specially on summer or spring days.

The Best Mango Sangria

Looking for a refreshing and fruity wine cocktail? This one uses mango, rather than the more common orange or cranberry. It's great for spring or just a regular brunch anytime of year.

You can also add apples to add a different flavor profile. Mango pairs well with berries, citrus, melon, and tropical fruits. To add that an herby flavor, you can muddle fresh mint and just add it right before serving.

4 Cups Mango Juice
1 bottle, sweet white wine
2 Mangoes
1 Orange
1 Lemon
2 cups Ice
5
  1. Thinly slice the orange, lemons and remove the seeds
  2. Dice the mangoes.
  3. In a large pitcher, place mango juice, white wine, and fruit.
  4. Let it infuse for 25...

Strawberry and rosé wine combinations are one of the best choices if you want to relax from tiring work throughout the week. Add some orange juice and it will be a perfect combination. You may also use pineapple juice instead of orange juice to feel Hawaii's vibrant summer breeze. Adding a few slices of peach would also be a great idea.

8 ounces strawberry
1 bottle Rose wine
2 pints club soda
1 ounce mint leaves

Steamed Clams in White Wine

A steamy bowl of clams is very centering. It's also a very hands-on dish, where you tear the clams out of the shells. I also like crusty bread to dip into the dish.

Our version of the dish is a bit spicy. You can omit the red pepper flakes if you don't feel like putting some heat in the dish. You may also add some ginger for a more aromatic flavor to the dish. Also, you can twist this dish by toasting the garlic to make it crispy and add it at the end as a garnish.

2 tbsp Olive Oil
1 medium-sized shallot
3 cloves Garlic
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 cup White wine
2 lbs littleneck clams
1 lemon
Spring onions for garnish
Salt and pepper to taste
4
  1. Start by mincing the garlic and onions.
  2. Clean and scrub the clams.
  3. Heat oil in a pan. Add the minced shallots and cook for 2 minutes.

Spicy deviled eggs

When appetizers are a little salty, like these deviled eggs, they are especially good with a refreshing sparkling wine. The creaminess and fattiness of the yolk is great with bubbly.

You can omit the hot sauce if you don't want them spicy. But spicy food also goes well with champagne.

If you're looking for additional mix-ins, try fresh dill or shiso (Japanese mint).

3/4 cup white wine
3/4 cup chives
1/4 cup scallions
6 large eggs
(2 tbsp) hot sauce
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp cumin
1/4 cup scallions
1 tsp smoked paprika

  1. Fill a large pot with cold water to cover the eggs
  2. Bring water to boil for 1 minute and let stand and cool for 10 minutes.
  3. Heat scallions, wine, and cumin to boiling. Reduce until...

Savory Littleneck Clams in Wine

Clams and wines are classic go-to partners. This flavor combination is well-balanced. That is why most of the clam recipes always take advantage of wine as a pairing, not just a drink, but also as one of the main components in the dish.

For additional flavor notes, you can add a stalk of lemongrass or a bunch of dill. You can also add some vegetables such as corn or potatoes to add body to the dish. A bit of cream and saffron would also be wonderful in this dish.

24 oz clams
1 cup basil leaves
5 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic
1 cup dry white wine
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 lemon
1 cup vegetable stock
Salt and pepper to taste
4
  1. Using a blender, blend the basil and vegetable stock until smooth.
