I’m serving White Sangria (no red wine near my dress please) in beverage jars. The question is, do I use the one with the spout or lid & ladle? I like the spout, but my favorite part of sangria is the fruit. What do you think?

I think that if you like the fruit, the lid and ladle is the way to go.

I Say no to the spout. I like the idea of using the jars best. I made martinis (Strawberry Lemon Martinis to be exact) at my sister’s engagement party and use big glass jars from Ikea and use a ladle into the glasses.
Plus as an extra bonus, the jars now double as my flour and sugar dispensers!

I say do both! Take the top off the container! For those that do not like the fruit, they don’t have to use the ladle on the top and use the spout. For those that like the fruit, then ladle it is!

This is a bit off topic but…would you mind sharing your recipe for White Sangria? It sounds delish!

We are making 8 gallons of this
1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
3 c. water
1/2 c. brandy
1/2 c. mango nectar
1 cinnamon stick
1 gallon of pinot grigio or sauvignon blanc
a bag of frozen fruit blend from costco (peaches, honeydew, cantalope)
a bunch of green grapes
a bottle of club soda
Make a simple syrup with the sugar and water. We are going to take in 5 gallon buckets with lid from home depot. Clean your buckets well.
We will also freeze some sort of fruit juice in half a milk carton so it won’t get too diluted with just regular ice. If you think you are getting low, just add another bottle of wine.

Also, I vote the lid & ladle. I agree that the fruit in sangria is the best!
