Discussion in 'Fruit, Nuts & Vegetables' started by sfprankster, May 25, 2016.

  1. While I'm waiting for my strawberry liqueur and limoncello to become happy. I made some of my favorite summertime sangria from the fruit we purchased at the farmer's market today.

    All begins with 1/2 gallon jar... [​IMG]

    Added  a few aromatic spices for a unique flavor twist... [​IMG]


    Fresh lime and orange slices... [​IMG]

      

    Slices of pluots, apricots, white peaches, white nectarines... [​IMG]

      

      

    All into the pool to get happy... [​IMG]


    A bottle of Bordeaux wine(blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah)... [​IMG]

      

    Topped with carbonated water... [​IMG]

      

    Into the fridge for a few days to become HAPPY... [​IMG]


    In a few days, the wine, fruit and spice flavors will have married...

    ...and sfprankster and his gf will be HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY!!!  [​IMG]
