White Sangria
great way to start a bbq

5 cups Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc
1 cup Triple Sec
¼ cup superfine sugar
1  cup white grape juice
1  ripe nectarine, pitted and cut into thin wedges
1  ripe summer peach, pitted and cut into thin wedges
1  cup seedless white grapes, halved
1  cup club soda

In a large pitcher or other container, combine the wine, triple sec and sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the remaining ingredients, excluding the club soda, and mix well. Place the pitcher in the refrigerator and let the sangria sit for at least 1 hour (and up to 4 hours). The sangria will sweeten with time, so the longer it sits, the better. Just before serving, stir in the club soda and ice cubes.
