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.
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.
