We made some Sangria on St Patrick's day afternoon. We've not drank any since last summer. It's a drink we discovered the first time we went to the Algarve.
A lovely South African bottle of Stellenbosch wine was on offer. We made the Sangria with the wine, whisky, lemonade, chopped, apples, lime and bananas and even strawberries. Strawberries in March?
So what's the West Cork connection? It was made in West Cork.🍇😊 Bananas don't grow in West Cork. But Furze, Fuchsia and soft rushes are prevalent.
It's a great way to celebrate St Patrick's day. Don't know if we will get to the Algarve this year. But it felt like it!
Do you make Sangria?
It's a lovely drink on a sunny March day down here on the Irish Riviera. The old currant bun is shining in the sky again today. I think I'll make some more Sangria tonight. Cheers!
