    White Sangria

    One 4L jug Carlo Rossi Rhine wine. ( Available at local stores that cater to cheap musicians)

    1 large Punch bowl.

    One quart lemonade per Jug.

    An orange or two, sliced, and a lime if you feel so inclined.
    If you want more fruit, throw in some seedless grapes.

    Combine and start ladleing it out.

    Need 1 backup jug for when that is exhuasted.

    Light and fruity, no oaky Chardonnay flavor.
    No hangover.

  3. Hey, that does sound good. Is "rhine" wine a red / white....(I'm clueless to this...)

    I'd like to try making a red and a white variable..maybe one spicy, one a little smoother / fruitier... mix it up.

    Rhine is a white, medium sweet, a little fizzy, perfect for
    White Sangria.

    You can do the same with a red, use a Carlo Red Sangria
    or Burgundy if they don't have the Sangria.
    Same basic fruits.
    Stuff costs about 9 bucks a jug.

    Add a half pint of Everclear if there are no drivers ...
    but don't if anyone has to drive home. As opposed to

    (You gotta keep your alk intake up up north here for the
    Pats games, snow shoveling and to stave off influenza
    and other infectious diseases.)

    NJL, Thunderbird is a car, I don't think they have made that
    stuff in 20 years, have they? Uuuuuugghhh!

    Thunderbird TC is alive and well, and don't you try to pretend you didn't drink the whole 5 gallons!!

    I must have forgot after all the Mohitos I had at Rosarios.
    There must be a big market for that down in San Antone.

    Anyway, Ron, that'll do it for ya.
    QC tested and approved. ;)

    I love Sangria. I drank a two liter pitcher of it in Andalusia, Spain when I was there. Awesome place, byt the way.

    make sure you shop up peaches and put them in. That's how they do it in Andalusia.

    can't have sangria without cherries ;)
  13. Damn, getting thirsty here . C'mon Saturday. Thanks for the pointers guys. Keep 'em coming.
  14. My Sangria

    - 750 mL bottle of Concha y Toro Merlot
    - (1) Frozen Lime Juice cylinder, like Minute Maid
    - (1) 2liter bottle of Orange Pop, Sprite, or 7UP
    - Rum to taste ( I usually throw in ~4 shots.
    - 12 oz can of drained, diced pineapple (NOT the kind in syrup)
    - Fruit (diced Apples, Oranges, Peaches)

    You may need to double, triple, or quadruple the recipe, obviously....


    This recipe gets the seal of approval from many a beautiful Latina.

    Dubble yum.

    Actually this is a combo of a Peruvian's and an Italian's recipes. Tons of compliments on this recipe.

    The pop (That's right, POP, not SODA, as I'm from Pittsburgh) might seem kind of strange for Sangria, but it actually works pretty good.

    Most bars in Spain mix Sangria with soda. The real traditional resturaunts mix it with various juices and sliced melocotón.
  16. Hmm.... Didn't know that... Thanks
  17. damn. sounds so good. must drink now. on the clock tho. c'mon 4:30. sigh.

    some really great stuff here. I think I'll be making at least two batches, and culling all the ideas for definite future fireside intoxications.

  18. Always use a light red wine - merlot, even better is 1/2 cab sav and 1/2 rose

    For 6 ltrs -

    1 btl merlot
    1 btl rose
    1 btl sparkling wine (champagne)
    canned chopped fruit - including chopped apple, peach, pear
    1 clove
    *important, secret ingredient* - 1.25 ltrs fizzy ginger ale
    largish dash of gomme syrup

    this is a 5-star hotel recipe (where i work)

    *important* make the day before and let the alcohol and fruit soak together.

    You can use a large punchbowl to serve, add ice just before service, and for a little bit of class - ensure you have a ladle and sufficient glassware to serve your guests.

    Sangria is often served from large, bulbous jugs (heh) so make sure you keep the jugs chilled by icing regularly.

    Sangria is a class drink to serve, BTW

    Good luck!

    One bottle of red wine of your choice,
    One double shot of brandy
    Two oranges, cut into 8ths
    Two limes cut into 8ths
    One lemon, cut into 8ths
    Seven maraschino cherries, plus associated juice
    Half cup sugar
    Ice in a big pitcher....

    Important safety tip- cut fruit first!
    Once cut, squeeze each wedge to juice it into the pitcher.
    Throw the squeezed fruit in the pitcher.
    Add brandy.
    Add sugar.
    Add wine.
    Add cherries.
    Stir, then pour into glass and drink.

    Or drink it straight from the pitcher, what do I care?
    I'm not drinking after you anyway.
