Where’s the Sangria?

Sunny told me that she was talking about the sangria at last Saturday’s party on the air and gave out the url to Foodies. I was thinking that the sangria recipe originally posted on July 4th might not be that easy to find (if you type “sangria” in the search, it actually comes up as the second item and not the first one) so I’m going to repost it here.

1 large bottle lambrusco
1 1/2 cup of orange juice
1 small can of frozen lemonade concentrate
1 litre of Fresca
slices of fruit (optional)

I scratched the fruit off on Saturday because I didn’t want to mess with slicing and stuff, specially since I was at someone else’s house. It still turned out okay. For this recipe, the fruit is optional because it is really mostly decorative. You get the fruit flavor from the juices.

I only brought one 3 litre bottle of lambrusco because I didn’t know how many people were coming, and I didn’t realize how much everyone would like it. Don’t be like me. Be prepared and buy several bottles of everything.

BTW, I’m sequestering my mom’s punch bowl and making Sangria for tonight also. Brian and I are going to experiment and make some non-alcoholic kind also using Welch’s grape juice, so we will have both varieties. One with a kick and one without. The non-alcoholic is mostly for him and the kids. This way they can feel like grown ups. =P
