LG had to have sangria...  Reply with quote  

And now you can have some JUST like hers... Laughing

1 bottle dry red wine
4 oz Courvasier
1/4 cup organic sugar
1 lemon, sliced
1 lime, sliced
1 sweet lime, sliced
1 navel orange, sliced
1 liter club soda

In a big glass pitcher, put sliced fruit, and cover with sugar dissolved in Courvasier. Let sit on counter (room temp) for an hour. Add red wine, let sit again, at least one hour. At moment of service, add club soda, and serve over ice. Make sure each serving includes some of the fruit slices, so no one gets scurvy. Ahhhh.....


BTW... if I am not serving anyone except me and maybe Moneyman, I do not mix the club soda in all at once. I make individual portions, roughly 3/5 wine-fruit mix to 2/5 club soda. That way, I can refrigerate any extra, and not worry about flat club soda in there.

Nope... which is a very good thing when you go back to make that second pitcher, dexterity-wise. Wink (Although, looking at the 2nd recipe, I would say I might peel those stone fruits, myself... peaches have fuzz.)

I know a simple way to achive this, here is the recipie:

1 bottle vodka (I like Sky Vodka, but your choice is a personal one, so I won't try to influence it. Just remeber to keep clear of McCormicks)

1 6 oz glass (or cup, but platic seems less classy)

Optional, Ice

It may not have the same taste as LG's version, it may not be as refreshing on a hot day as Ginjg's, but by the second glass, you just won't give a fuck.

Enjoy!

you can always do the lazy version and just toss in a couple of bags or one "family size" bag of frozen mixed fruit.

Ooh, Courvoisier! I'll have to try that next time!


I make a sangria off of this base recipe

1 bottle dry red wine
1 cup orange juice
1 1/2 cups rum
1/2 cup white sugar
1 lemon
1 lime
1 orange

usually cutting down on the sugar, and adding a few shots of blackberry brandy and a splash of ginger ale.

Warning: It's strong (perhaps not as strong as UT's). I drank a pitcher of this a few Sundays ago and it was pretty much sleepy time.
