Fruity Drink Fridays
This weeks' featured drink it one of the all time fruity drinks-Sangria. For me Summer & Sangria go hand in hand. I like to make a big pitcher up for the weekend. This recipes is a white Sangria and one of my favorites.
1 Bottle of White Wine such as Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, or even a Chablis.
1/2 Cup Peach Schnapps
1/4 Cup Triple Sec (or if you don't mind sacrificing it Grand Marnier)
1/4 Cup Mango liquor
1/4 Cup Apricot Brandy (optional)
1/2 Cup Pineapple juice
1/2 Cup Peach nectar
1/2 Cup Orange juice
Sliced oranges, peaches, lemons, limes, pineapple, green apple, fresh berries, star fruit, kiwi, grapes, mango. You can add any combination or even all of these fruits. Myself I really like eating the wine soaked fruit so I go big on the fruit.
Place all the fruit you are using in you pitcher and lightly muddle. Add everything else. Enjoy! This drink only gets better with time, so if you can wait a little bit to drink it-even better :) Oh and with all the fruit & juice this drink seems harmless, but remember there is a lot more than just wine in there. Don't forget the hard liquor is in there too-it sneaks up on you ;)
