Fancy A Sip?

Monday, August 23, 2010
On Saturday we had a group of lovely friends over. We made some yummy food and chocolate toffee cookies. Balazs also wanted to try out a new Sangria recipe he found a few weeks ago. Besides the usual blend of sweet red wine, cut up oranges, lemons, limes, we added some orange, grape and apple juice and to top it all off, we poured in some honey and champagne for a sparkle effect!
It was delicious!

How do you drink your Sangria?

Kisses,

I didn't know you could combine so many flavors in one drink. Back in the day we used to call that a 'suicide.' ;)

Lillian Chang said...

Diana Mieczan said...

It wasn't too strong as the ingredients were is balance:)

I love Sangria. There is a restaurant in my town famous for it. It's become a crutch because I compare all other Sangria to it!

One of my fondest memories is sipping Sangria on the Plaza Mayor in Madrid on a hot summer night with my Hubby. I brought back a book of recipes for several different kinds of Sangria. If I am being honest....I don't care what's in it. The best part is nibbling all the fruit at the bottom of the pitcher!
Best,
Tina

that looks delicious! my boyfriend adds peaches to his sangria. the alcohol content is anyone's guess...usually just whatever is near by, added to some sprite and orange soda.

Oh my goodness! I had some delicious sangria on Friday in San Francisco, but there is no doubt I'd have loved it even more if it had champagne in it! I'm a sucker for bubbles . . . champagne, cava, persecco, you name it!

So refreshing!!!

Arushi Khosla (FabBlab) said...

Mmmm would love some of that!

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

Yum!
Since visiting Spain last year Dr. J and I drink it A LOT.

I usually mix red wine, OJ and ginger ale.
I have been known to use white and red together.

Coincidentally is what I marinate my brisket in- I am looking forward to fall when I start making it again.

Gina said...

i've never liked sangria but the way you described making it makes me wanna try it again :)

This sounds wonderful! During winter time I make red wine sangria. During the summer I like to make white wine or rose sangria mixed with tropical juices such as mango and passion fruit ; )

I buy my sangria from World mart. Its a simple but yummy blend. I will be trying yours out as the champange sounds soooo refreshing.
Sounds like a perfect day.

Jen said...

You're going to die when I tell you this but I've never had sangria! I think it's probably because I always have a Miller Lite in one hand and a red wine in the other. Guess I need more hands!! ;-)

Josie said...

Oh, this looks delicious! And what a stunning color.

I can't say I'm a huge fan of Sangria, but in the winter I love hot wine mixed with mulled tea, sugar, and cinnamon sticks!!

I've make sangria differently every time....some red wine, some wine coolers, some OJ, some pears, some berries, orange slices....
I dunno...I don't think one can go wrong making sangria :)

Love the idea of sangria on a warm summer patio.

Wahzat Gayle said...

slowly and with friends :)
Hugs to you Diana

Krystal said...

this is the summer of the sangria for me, I've made it so much! I put lots of peaches and strawberries in mine :)
and p.s. we do hike a lot - we try to once a week! it's hard not to with the gorgeous trails around here but sometimes other things get in the way (ugh, like the rain right now )
