Thought I would pull the Diner out of these bloody winter doldrums with a new theme.
Saw this theme and immediately liked it.
Scroll down and watch the sunrise and fall.
Very nice indeed.
I thought a cool summertime drink recipe would be nice.
Here’s my own version of Sangria that I haven’t made in well over 25 years.
Lord knows why I’m thinking about it today.
Must be the weather.
Dad’s Sangria Punch
you will need:
1 – 750ML bottle of decent red wine
1/2 cup of Gosling’s Black Seal rum
1 – lemon, orange & lime, sliced
1 pint of strawberries or fresh raspberries
1 – Granny Smith apple, cored, sliced and studded with 10 whole cloves
1 – small bottle of lemon lime soda (Mountain Dew is awesome)
Here’s what you do:
- In a large jar or pitcher combine wine and rum with sliced lemon, orange, lime, and strawberry.
Push cloves into apples slices and add to mixture.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight (overnight is always better).
- Before serving, remove cloves from apple slices and garnish drinks by spooning some marinated fruit into glass.
Add ice and pour in the sangria.
- Listen to Chris Rea sing ‘On the Beach’ while sipping and relaxing.
