365 05/19

sorry, i had to. but sometimes on a sunday evening, after all the chaos of a weekend, i'll gladly sit down with a cocktail to enjoy the very end of the weekend.

my favorite orange flavored drink? blood orange sangria

3 blood oranges (two juiced, one sliced)
1 bottle of pinot grigio
1/4 cup of brandy
1/2 cup of club soda
a handful of sliced strawberries
a handful of raspberries
half an apple, chopped
sugar for rimming the glass

combine the wine, brandy, the orange juice, and all the fruit into a pitcher and stir well. i like to let it sit for awhile so the fruit can flavor the liquid. to rim your glass, run an orange slice around the rim and dunk the glass into the sugar. add a bit of the fruit to the glass, then fill with sangria. top it off with a bit of the club soda for fizzy-ness.

perfect for summer, fruity and fresh.
