It was decided last minute that Palm Springs was in order last weekend.So, naturally first thing that came to mind was making some homemade sangria to take with and sip on by the pool.
I've yet to blog a cooking type post (not that making sangria qualifies as cooking). This is probably because I don't really cook. And trust me, my mom isn't that thrilled about my lack of knowledge around the kitchen. But hey, I'm busy - I stick to the basics: salads, smoothies, sangria.
Anyway, here's the recipe I used to make this fine white wine cocktail.
1 Bottle of white wine
1 1/2 ounces triple sec
1 1/2 cups Kerns Nectar juice (I chose Mango)
Just a bunch of fruit - I cut up oranges, strawberries and pineapple
Throw all that fruit in a pitcher with your drink concoction. Let it sit in the fridge over night so that everything soaks together all nicely.
To be honest, I didn't even know how to cut a pineapple correctly - I had to google it. Yikes.
It was all worth it though - this was the perfect, most refreshing drink to have in the 100 degree heat that Palm Springs had to offer.
