New Year's Sangria
The MotH and I had lunch yesterday at our favorite Cali-Mex Restaurant, Cactus Flower, and since it was New Year's Eve and we had no rush, we had Sangria. It was lovely. Not too sweet, but fruity, so I decided in my infinite wisdom to make some to take to lovely Mother-in-Laws for New Year's Day Evening. So I read a few recipes - too much brandy and Cointreau for me. So I created my own version.
Recipe (if you can call making something up a recipe) 1 bottle of Australian Shiraz 1 naval orange, sliced thin 1 lemon, sliced thin 1 lime, sliced thin 1/4 c. granulated sugar club soda, add a splash when serving
