One bottle of red wine. Places like Lidl and Aldi do some really cheap one's. "Sangria" is the Spanish word for blood. Cut some citrus fruit into wedges. Add a shot of Brandy or whatever spirit you like. Apparently the experts don't recommend Vodka for some reason. We also put in 2 cups of ginger ale and a chopped up banana and some strawberries.
Any road. When you have got all your ingredients together. Pour the bottle of wine into a large jug or pitcher. Squeeze the juice out of your orange and lemons (Said the bells of St Clements..") and toss in the fruit, without any seeds ("pips"), then add some sugar and chill overnight. If you want to drink it straight away (you do, you do) just use some chilled wine and add some ice and slice up some strawberries or whatever fruit you like or can get hold of.
Now take it outside in the garden and sit down and enjoy. Don't look at the weeds. Just enjoy. Summer is on it's way.
Do you have any summer drinks recipes?
