Alright, time to celebrate! It is the weekend. The house is SOLD! AND, I’m posting more than one recipe this week! Yeah! 🙂
I’ve never tried a Sangria before, but a friend of mine made me some candles in this scent, and I LOVE them. I’m not a fan of wine, so I wasn’t sure I was going to like this. But, since I mix my Sangria with Sprite right before drinking, it is actually a nice drink to sit on the deck on a hot summer day & enjoy.
Kick back and enjoy the weekend with the Perfect Sangria. 🙂 (But be responsible, these are pretty boozy if you don’t add the carbonated water/Sprite).
The Perfect Sangria
- 1/2 cup brandy
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/3 cup frozen lemonade concentrate
- 1/3 cup orange juice
- 1 (750 ml) bottle of dry red wine
- 1/2 cup triple sec (or Grand Marnier)
- 1 lemon, sliced into rounds
- 1 orange, sliced into rounds
- 1 lime, sliced into rounds
- 1/4 cup white sugar (optional)
- 8 maraschino cherries
- 2 cups carbonated water (optional, I omitted this)

Jeanine..I must say this drink looks very inviting for a hot day! We are still waiting for the hot days of summer!
Betty, you'll have to join me on the deck, if that HOT summer day ever arrives! 🙂

Give me a shout and I'll be there!!
Congrats on the news!
I feel very refreshed and cooled off just looking at this, which says a lot considering it's about 100 degrees here :).
That looks divine, Jeanine … though our weather here lately has called for hot chai tea more than cool beverages. What a summer! Uugh.
Congrats on the house! Yahoo!!! Here's hoping you'll be moved in and enjoying some refreshments at your new place soon.
