Today’s recipe comes from my lifelong friend Elizabeth. Eliz is living the adventurous life in Colorado- more details to come soon on an edition of Sangria is Better w/ Friends.
She shared her recipe with me that she made for her ‘book club’ , they do activities — like vodka infusing and bucket-list writing — instead of feeling guilty if they didn’t finish a book.
I am happy to report that a previous post I had done about blood orange San Pellegrino inspired her. Here is her recipe: I mixed Pinot Grigio + San Pellegrino blood orange (per your post!) + frozen fruit (mix w/ pina, mango, strawberries) + big ass mint leaves from the garden.
Thanks Eliz & salud!
This is actually not a sangria it has all the fixings of one minus the wine. After a week of sangria & mai tais in Hawaii I owed my body a rest from the hard stuff. We were with our friends in their beautiful SF house enjoying a dinner party pre night time flight home, most were enjoying tequila and wine. I held myself back and worked up a refreshing mocktail that even a few of the other guests requested.
I mixed together pellegrino, limeade, mint leaves, raspberries & strawberries.
Try for yourself!
Today’s post comes via Katie at the Kitchen Door. She calls this drink a spritzer but it has all the goings on of a delicious sangria. Rhubarb is in season now so go scoop some up out of your garden or from your local market and try this one out.
Katie asked that you visit her blog for the recipe. Salud!
Make yourself a promise- you will enjoy the sunshine this weekend, chop some fruit, get a bottle of wine and add your sweetener of choice.
If you by chance are making some sangria this weekend- DO tag it with #sangriadiaries so I can see all your handy work.
