Spin tradition and present Mom with White Sangria
With Mother's Day on Sunday it is time to pull out all the stops. Many will bring out the bubbly and make mimosa's for brunch, but maybe the springtime weather calls for something fresh and fruity that can be made in advance to serve a crowd — cue the sangria. But, to mix up tradition, take a suggestion from Food Network star Christine Cushing and serve a version using white wine instead of the typical Spanish red. Stay in the Mediterranean and utilize an inexpensive vinho verde from Portugal or albariño from Spain. Both offer fresh and lively flavours that will make this a refreshing and fruity addition to your Sunday brunch.
