Since Spring has finally hit, I’m going to put out a quick ebook of recipes for wine cocktails. You’ll learn why you should never soak citrus fruit in your Sangria pitcher. the difference between a Mimosa and a Bucks Fizz, and how to make a Kir Royale.  Stay tuned!


Sangria time soon!

It will soon be Sangria season. My recipe can be mostly prepared several days in advance.

  • 2 bottles hearty Spanish red (Grenache or Grenache blend)
  • 2 pears, cored and cut into 1/2″ cubes
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen berry mix
  • 48 oz bottle of fruity lemonade/limeade (I like Trader Joe’s Pomegranate Limeade)
  • 1 L sparkling water

Combine all ingredients except the sparkling water in a large container, and keep covered in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours (you can keep this up to 5 days long).  Just before serving, add the sparkling water.
