Pedro Ligero’s White Sangría Azulete

July 1987
Nothing in the 7,000-word article on Barcelona from whence this recipe comes provides a clue to the identity of Pedro Ligero. Whoever he is, he had a nice touch for punch. Look for Fever-Tree bitter lemon and ginger ale for a less sweet, more sophisticated sangría.

2/3 cup fresh lime juice
2/3 cup Pimm’s No. 1 Cup
2/3 cup vodka
3 cups dry white wine
7/8 cup chilled bitter lemon soda
7/8 cup fresh orange juice
7/8 cup chilled ginger ale or club soda
thin slices of lemon or orange, halved, for garnish

In a large pitcher stir together the lime juice, the Pimm’s, the vodka, the wine, the bitter lemon, the orange juice, and the ginger ale, add the lemon slices and 2 cups ice cubes, and stir the sangría. Makes about 6 cups.
