Flicker-doodles had our first ever dinner party last night. It was so much fun. I loved every bit…from planning the menu, to the shopping to actually cooking the food. And I loved spending time with old friends, and meeting new friends.
It was awesome, and definitely will be done again, soon! This week (and next) I’ll bring you the recipes for our Mexican themed feast!
But for now, here’s the recipe for the yummy Sangria that got the party started.
- 2 oranges, sliced
- 1 lemon, sliced
- 1 lime, sliced
- 2 Granny Smith apples, seeded and cubed
- 2 c. grapes, red or green
- 1 c. pineapple (chunks or slices, doesn’t really matter)
- 1 bottle red wine
- 1 bottle white wine
- sprite (optional)
The night before you need this drink, cut up all the fruit and place it in a big pitcher. (I use my extra large tupperware container and just pour it into the pitcher when I’m ready to serve it.) Pour the wine over the fruit. Cover it and set it in the fridge to soak overnight. If you want to dilute it a bit, mix in a bit of Sprite. Serve over ice. (I pour orange juice in my ice cube trays and make flavored ice cubes, this way as the ice melts the flavor is not diluted by water. You can also use some Sprite to make ice cubes. Either one works great.)
It’s super pretty, and tasty too!
