I MADE SANGRIA! [hic...giggle]

Following on from discussions at work last week about great drinks for summer I thought I would try making Sangria since it was agreed that it is a great summertime drink.

We talk about food a LOT at my work. Seriously. The stuff we make and the restaurants we go to… hell we even go shopping together for food on our days off!

So I went shopping today and now I have just made 3litres of Sangria for the first time [hold on, gotta drink] ever, and it truly is freaking yummy.

Sangria is a Spanish “Fruit Punch” that has red wine and oranges in it [well it IS Spanish afterall"] It is fruity, and sweet, and spicy.

[just drinking a bit more]

  1. 4x oranges
  2. 2 lemons
  3. 1 apple, unpeeled, core removed, diced
  4. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon [I am using whole cinnamon quills]
    [I really need another glass of this stuff now…]
  5. 1/4 cup brandy [only 1/4 cup? that can’t be right… I think I will add some more!]
  6. 750ml bottle red wine
  7. 1/4 cup caster sugar
  8. 750ml bottle soft drink (lemonade, soda water or ginger ale) [I used ginger ale]

There are lotsh of different recipes, but I thought I would shtart with this bashic one. Its pretty easy, You don’t have to make half of it the day before, I jusht poured all the ingredients into a 4litre drink container [drinking just a bit more] gave it a realllllly good shake and then poured it into a tall glash wiv cold icey icey!
