Kerry Simon's Asian-style sangria combines Sauvignon Blanc with green tea–flavored vodka, but it can be made with plain or citrus vodka as well.

  1. One 750-milliliter bottle dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc
  2. 2 1/2 cups pomegranate juice, chilled
  3. 2 1/2 cups pear nectar, chilled
  4. 2 1/2 cups apricot nectar, chilled
  5. 1 cup green-tea vodka (see Note)
  6. Ice
  7. 1 Anjou or Bartlett pear, thinly sliced, for garnish
  1. In a pitcher, combine the wine with the pomegranate juice, pear and apricot nectars and vodka; refrigerate until chilled, 20 minutes. Pour into glasses over ice, garnish with the pear slices and serve.
Notes Charbay brand green-tea vodka is available at large liquor stores.
