It’s my 400th post!!!!Well, who the hell ever thought I’d get this far? Not me! For my 400th post, I wanted it to be a very special post.
And it IS a very special post!
But first, let’s get a little recipe out of the way. This is my Super Summer Sangria. Which I also turned into a Super Summer Sangria Punch for my Pork Pie Potluck (because we all know how much I love a good punch).
- Cheap Jug White Wine
- 2 sliced lemons
- 2 sliced oranges
- Juice from 2 oranges
- 2 liter bottle of diet Ginger Ale
- Sliced mango (if you’re feeling frisky)
Put orange slices, lemons slices, and the orange juice in the bottom of a punch bowl. Add whatever is left in the bottle of brandy you have in the back of your liquor cabinet and muddle it just a wee bit. Fill the rest of the bowl half way with diet ginger ale and the other half with the cheapy jug wine. And then maybe add some ice rings you made with slices of lemon, orange, and mango. Throw in the remainder of the mango into the bowl.
As the night progresses, and your alcoholic party goers imbibe, refill the punch bowl as needed with whatever you have left. That could be more fruit! More ice rings! Something sparkling! Rose? A bit of Random Lillet! Sherry? WHATEVER YOUR HEART DESIRES! Shit, throw in some grapes. Got lime? Pineapple juice? Fuck yeah!
But the easiest, simplest version is with things that you probably have on hand most evenings (or at least I do): white wine, diet ginger ale, bottled orange juice, and lemon slices. Perfect to throw together for unexpected guests (or just one, big lush).
OK, so let’s now get to the most important part of this post!
I’ve been lax on the posting because I got a promotion at work (adjustment phase). And because I went away for the 4th of July (see last post). But mostly because of this: I adopted another cat.
