Pear grape sangria is a refreshing and fruity white wine cocktail.
Asian pear, grapes and thyme pulled together to form a gorgeous sangria. If you can let it sit OVERNIGHT, please do!
That's when all the magic happens. To pair with the fruit, I added some St. Germaine which has pear flavors and it was pretty awesome. The fresh thyme offers a light and earthy touch and is a fabulous contrast with the other fruit.

Samantha, this post inspires me to make the hike next time I'm in LA—but no more so than batching up a pitcher of this delectably refreshing beverage. Nice work!
