Luckily, my sitemates and I stumbled upon a delicious new habit which I hope to enjoy all summer long - sangrias on Sundays. It does wonders for my disposition and provides ample opportunity for me to check in with my fellow PCVs.
If you are so inclined, enjoy a Sunday with me. I will be thinking good thoughts about you while sipping away (Note: These ingredients are easily found in Az. In the US, add a 1/2 cup brandy instead of a second bottle of wine)!
1 bottle red wineIn a small pot, combine 1 cup wine, 1 to 2 cups (your preference) sugar, a couple dashes cinnamon, some cloves, and a dash of ginger (I also add cardamon). Reduce to half.
1 bottle white wine
1 liter Lemon Aquafina (lemon flavored seltzer water)
1/2 kilo strawberries
1-2 cups sugar
While wine reduction is cooling, clean strawberries and slice citrus fruits. Add to reduction. Mix in remaining wine and Aquafina. Serve chilled.
