Use the options below to toggle between cups and grams (if relevant)
- 1 bottle dry white wine 750ml
- 2 nectarines
- 2 kiwis
- 10 strawberries
- Handful of grapes
- 60 ml (1/4 cup) apple schnapps or any other fruit schnapps (optional)
- 1 lime
- 1/2 bottle of appletiser or any sparkling apple or grape juice
- 8 slices ciabatta
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 4 large tomatoes
- 1/4 cup torn fresh basil leaves
- 1 garlic clove cut in half
- 1 ball of mozzarella
Thinly slice the nectarines.
Peel and thinly slice the kiwi.
Slice the strawberries and grapes.
In a large jug or pitcher, mix together the white wine, nectarine, kiwis, strawberries and grapes.
Stir through the schnapps, if using.
Top up the pitcher with the appletiser (or sparkling wine)
Serve over ice with a strawberry garnish and a squeeze of lime.
Depending on your tastes, you might want to add more or less appletiser. Those who cannot stand a sweet drink could substitute soda water.
Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan forced/Gas mark 6.
Lay the bread out on a lined baking sheet. Brush with olive oil (you won't need it all, but keep what is left) and bake for 10 minutes until crisp and lightly golden.
Deseeded and finely chop the tomatoes.
Combine the tomato, basil and remaining olive oil into a bowl.
Season well with salt and pepper.
Slice, chop or tear your mozzarella into small pieces.
Once the bread is cooked, gently rub each slice with the cut garlic clove.
Top the breads with the tomato mix and a few cubes of mozzarella.
Serve with an ice cold glass of sangria, and enjoy your spring evenings :-)
