I wanted to make a different type of drink from the usual brunch fare.  There have been so many interesting drinks made by my fellow brunching bloggers during the week, I wasn’t sure I could come up with something original. I made this drink when I had an abundance of strawberries in the house – I tend to get overzealous at the U-pick farms.  This white version is a little lighter than the red sangria.  The soda gives the drink sweetness, while also toning down the alcohol content, making it a perfect brunch beverage.

Here are the #BrunchWeek recipes for today.
