It’s hot hot hot outside…
And we can all use a little something to cool down with.
This week we’re concentrating on the refreshing.
First up, a little spirit for Moms and Dads.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 Bottle of red wine (I suggest a Rioja but you could also use Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, or Shiraz)
1 Lemon sliced
1 Orange sliced
1 Lime sliced
1 Apple slice
1 pear sliced
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brandy
2 T triple sec
2 cups club soda
WHAT TO DO:
In a large pitcher combine all ingredients with ice or frozen grapes and berries.
Did you know I used to be a bartender?
Well, I was. It’s actually how I met the hubs. Yup, I was slinging drinks in Beantown and he walked in one night. That’s a story for a different day.
So I used used to tend bar so lemme give you some variations on this one.
You could make this up with some grape juice or cran-grape cocktail instead of the wine?
Just leave out the brandy and triple sec.
The kids’ll love that version!
More delicious drinks up later this week!
