2 oz. vodka
4-6 oz. ginger beer
Add ingredients to glass filled with ice, stir and serve.

White Peach Sangria + SkinnyPop Naturally Sweet
WHY IT WORKS: Pairs sweet with sweet for a satisfying after (or before!) dinner treat. Make this in a larger batch
so when refills are needed, all you have to do is grab the pitcher.
1 bottle white wine
1 bottle sparkling peach juice
1 peach, sliced
1 pear, sliced
10 cherries, sliced
4 sprigs of fresh mint
In a large pitcher, combine all ingredients and stir. Refrigerate sangria until flavors mingle and it’s well chilled. Serve over ice, and use a slotted spoon to include sliced fruit with each serving.
