Simple Summer Sangria
It has been heating up here, in sunny California, and after long days at work, I felt it was time for a cool down with a fun pitcher of homemade sangria. Here is what I did; a little different from the norm, but I love these flavor combinations. The great thing about sangria is that you can have whatever flavor combinations you like.
This is what I put together:
1 ruby grapefruit, peeled with a knife and sliced into discs
1 peach, cut around the pit and sliced
1 lemon, ends removed, sliced into discs
1/3 cup red seedless grapes, halved
1 tablespoon agave nectar
1 1/2 cups pink lemonade
1 cup spritzer water
1 bottle Rose sparkling wine
4 fresh basil leaves, chiffonade
Mix together thoroughly. It is best to allow the flavors to marry a couple of hours - or longer - in the refrigerator prior to serving.
Ready to serve? Chill a glass in the freezer and gently pour. Then, simply enjoy.
I hope you enjoy this simple summer sangria!
Please remember, drink responsibly!!!!!
