Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 oranges
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 1/2 bottles crisp white wine
  • 2 cinnamon sticks , broken in half
  • 8 ounces Orchard Choice® or Sun-Maid® California Golden Dried Figs , stems removed and sliced lengthwise
  • 1 green apple , cored and cut into cubes
  • 2 cans ginger ale or more as needed

Instructions

  • Combine the sugar and water in a small bowl. Microwave for 1 minute—the sugar should be dissolved. Set aside.
  • From 1 orange and 1 lemon, trim the citrus peels. Using a vegetable peeler, trim long strips of peel from both the orange and lemon. Twist the peels so they will release some of their oil. Cut supremes from the orange and lemon, then cut the citrus slices into small chunks. Place the citrus peel twists and chunks into a large bowl. Juice the leftover pith and membranes into the bowl.
  • Juice the remaining orange and lemon into the bowl. Add cinnamon sticks, sliced golden dried figs, apple chunks, and simple syrup. Stir with a wooden spoon until evenly distributed. Transfer fruit to a pitcher and pour the wine over it, giving one last final stir.
  • Chill for 3 hours or longer—the longer it steeps, the more wine-infused the fruit will be.
  • Pour the sangria into glasses. Just before drinking, top off and stir in ginger ale as desired.
