Cucumber White Sangria Recipe

Here is the recipe for the Cucumber White Sangria that I enjoyed the other evening, courtesy of Blue Duck Tavern.

***If elderflower syrup is hard to come by, I would recommend using St. Germain Elderflower liqueur if you have it, or just using simple syrup. The floral flavor wasn't overwhelming, so even though it adds a cool note to the drink, it's not the end of the world if you omit it.
