Working Girl White Wine Sangria

Love this recipe... has a bit of a kick to it with the Gin & Triple Sec
Over ice, feet up, sun shining... this is it!!

1 cup sugar
¼ cup mint leaves (about 25), plus springs for garnish
1 cup Gin
½ cup Triple Sec
1 orange cut into small wedges
2 apples, cored and cut into small wedges
2 Bottles Working Girl White Wine
1 bottle Cava
1.      In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup water and sugar to a simmer. Add mint leaves, remove from heat, and stir until all the sugar is dissolved. Let mixture stand 1 hour, then strain into a jar and refrigerate until ready to use
2.      In a large pitcher or punch bowl, stir together gin, triple sec, orange and apples. Refrigerate 2 hours or as long as overnight. When ready to serve, stir in white wine and 1 cup mint syrup. Pour into ice-filled glasses, top with Cava, garnish with mint springs and serve.
Makes 8 servings
