Clericó is very similar to Spanish Sangria however, this Argentine drink recipe features white wine instead of red wine, chunks of in-season fruits, and a touch of sugar. The key is to choose fresh fruits and serve them at the perfect temperature.
At least three different types of fruits are recommended to make a good clericó. Ideally, you will want to choose 4 or 5 seasonal fruits and combine them to taste, experimenting with different wines each time to find your favorite.
