Default Sangria!!

I would'nt normally go out of my way to drink Sangria as I'm not too sure that what you get in restaurants is made traditionally anymore (help Jane !) ...red wine brandy + ??! :\ However I spotted a large attractive bottle in Caprabo and thought it might be nice and light for lunchtimes and pre dinner drinks on the balcony before going out for dinner. It was really fruity and spicy and the next day Chelseadons went back to stock up for the duration It was a light alternative to red wine, which I adore but find to heavy when it's very hot. Definitely worth a try and only about 5 euros ( I think)

cd and debs -

Here's another recipe for Sangria I found:

fresh fruit: oranges, peaches, apricots, apples, mangoes

fruit juice to taste: orange, apple
2 bottles of red wine
sugar to taste
1 bottle of lemonade
1 small glass each of vodka, gin and Cointreau
2 small glasses of red martini

This sounds a bit more lethal than the previous recipe I posted on the Summertime drinking thread.


(PS - Rob - feel free to adapt it as you wish )

Sadly I turned our heating on this evening and poured myself a small glass of last year's Sloe Gin. Autumn is here!

cd go and buy it! Not sure how long you're in PP for or if your daughter is old enough to help you drink it but it keeps well for a few days if the cork is replaced ...enjoy

Jane down the road from you in Mk we have also put heating on and the red is opened..Calloway Crossing an Australian Shiraz on offer in Tescos today 3 off and only 2.99. Your sangria recipe sounds very good, if not lethal,and I'll save it for warmer weather ..so that'll be next year then BRRRRRRR :eek !
