Summer Sangria

I had a really good Sangria a while ago. I don't drink it often, but when I do, I remember how much I enjoy it. It always seemed like a lot of trouble to make though. I came across this recipe for Emeril's Sangria and thought I'd bite the bullet and just try it for a family party we were going to have. It does look a little intimidating because of all the ingredients but really it was pretty easy to throw together and definitely worth the effort, it was a hit! I'm sure I'll be making it again this summer and thought I'd share the recipe here if anyone else wants to try it.

1 (750-ml) bottle red wine
1/4 cup brandy
1/4 cup orange flavored liqueur (recommended: triple sec or Grand Marnier)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 orange, thinly sliced
1/2 lemon, thinly sliced
1 unwaxed apple, cored, and cut into thin wedges
1 (750-ml) bottle sparkling water, chilled

Combine everything but the sparkling water in a large plastic container or glass pitchers. Cover and chill completely, 1 to 2 hours. When ready to serve, add the sparkling water.

Now that looks absolutely refreshing. I could drink a pitcher of that in this hot Florida weather.
Thanks so much for sharing also:)

Do you want to have more time to visit other peoples sites to read their articles, increase traffic which brings mass drops on your site, I have a system that I made that makes it easy to drop entrecards in 15 minutes or less. Go to and you will see. If you don't like to get messages please let me know and i will never send you one again, I am only trying to help people get credits so they can advertise on other peoples sites. Good luck.

Wow! It really looks quenching. I'm gonna give it a try or more likely I'll get hubby to prepare it. He's my home bartender. :)

Sorry I've not dropped by for some time now. I would like to make it up by sharing "The Humane Award" with you.

Do check it out at
