Sangria. Nuf said.

Passing notes today:  Mrs. G

Hello and Happy New Year!!!  I hope you are all enjoying good times and healthy laughs with your friends and family.  I know that we are and am very thankful for it.  We are also thankful for a little soul warming around here (translation: Sangria).  My hubby and I always host Christmas Eve dinner and a few dinners around New Years .... so I like to make my favorite {adult} beverage.  Sangria.

I have had bottled Sangria that I like, but I think that you get a little more bang for your buck when you make it. My friend introduced me to this a couple years back (thanks Meg)! 

Here it is:

  • Red wine (table, merlot, cabernet, pinot noir ...)
  • White (table, chardonnay, reisling, pinot grigio ...)
  • Limeade (I buy the Wegmans brand)
  • Club Soda
  • Ice and fruit (optional)

I mix equal parts, depending on my carafe size, of white and red wine, leaving room for the other 2 liquids.  Cut up the fruit of my choice and marinate it for a few hours in the wine.  Right before I am going to serve the Sangria, add equal parts club soda and cold limeade.  A few ice cubes and a good stir.  Ready to serve! 

Go 2013,

Mrs. Kelly Comment:  Yes, please!
