So, I hear that Thursday is the new Friday.
Partly because, TWO FRIDAYS every week. How awesome would that be.
But also because that means there must be a pitcher of this sangria in my fridge with my name on it. And a sign that says “DO NOT TOUCH. Husband <– this means you”.
The thing that you guys should know about me is that I am a sangria junkie. If it is on a menu, I will order it. Usually in pitcher-sized quantities.
Not all sangria is created equal, however, and I have had it all. From the really good to the mediocre to the bad to the “I accidentally threw this entire pitcher across the room so I wouldn’t have to drink it. Oops.”.
This, of course, makes it all the more appalling that I haven’t just sucked it up and MADE SOME MYSELF already. I mean, if you want something done right…
Good news: this sangria is so right.
It’s right for summer. It’s right for slurping. It’s right for sipping.
It’s. Just. Right.
Made with a mix of my current favorite summer fruits, slightly sweet sparkling white wine, and a touch of peach schnapps it is also light, juicy, and super refreshing. To keep things interesting, I added in a few teaspoons of Nielsen-Massey’s Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Powder. WOW. Vanilla is definitely not just for baking anymore! Here, it serves to enhance the floral flavors of the fruits and it adds a subtle vanilla flavor that piques your tongue’s interest and keeps you going back for more. I will definitely be using it again and again in my cocktails…and my coffee…and my oatmeal…and everything.
