With summertime fast approaching its time to fire up the grill (or stove/oven/microwave) and post some your favorite "go to" summertime recipes. This can also include your favorite summertime cocktail/drink.
I will kick it off with my go to summertime drink when friends or family come over.
Yields: 1 pitcher
-1 package of frozen berries (balckberries,blueberries, rasberries) or whatever fruit you like
-1/4 cup of brandy
-1 liter of red wine (I prefer cabernet)
- 1/4 cup of simple syrup (or to taste)
-1/2 cup orange juice
- 1 lime (cut in half)
-1 orange (cut sideways outer skin removed)
- 1 liter of club soda or ginger ale, I prefer club soda this is optional to top off drink once poured in glass.
-Combine frozen berries,Orange slices and brandy in pitcher let soak for at least and hour or two and refrigerate.
-Add orange juice, juice from lime, red wine and simple syrup stir
-Taste, if bitter add more orange juice and or simple syrup to taste... stir. You should not be able to taste the dryness of the wine sort of tastes like gatorade fruity and light.
- pour into glass with ice and top off with club soda.. enjoy...
