Tropical Break Away

Our Tropical Break Away was a big hit. We have decided to have a Sangria Saturday once a month through the spring & summer. We will sample different sangria's each time and give you the recipe. Here are the recipes we sampled at our Tropical Break Away:

Blackberry & Pineapple Sangria Spritzer

1 c. chopped fresh pineapple with juice

1 ½ c. Wide River Pursuit of Happiness

3-4 c Sprite

Muddle the pineapple, combine, garnish with thinly sliced lemon, chill & serve.

Makes a small pitcher.

White Sangria

1 c. sliced peaches

½ c. chopped pineapple with juice

1 ½ c. Santa Maria Voila

3 c. ginger ale

Muddle the fruit in the bottom of the pitcher, add remaining ingredients, stir, chill & serve.

Here are some spring and summer tips to enjoying wine:

*Keep your glass chilled with frozen berries or grapes rather than ice that will melt & dilute your drink.

*Santa Maria Peach Tea add just an ounce or 2 of Santa Maria to ice tea for a easy peachy tea. Garnish with fresh slice peaches or raspberries.

*Add a slice of orange, lemon or lime to Schade Creeks Friends or Santa Maria Rosie’s Rose

*When making sangria with fresh fruit freeze the fruit first to keep it chilled.

*When making wine spritzers use lemom lime soda or ginger ale for sweeter drinks, & tonic water or club soda for dryer options.
