Sangria

Yummy note: It has been a long time since I've posted a drink recipe on my blog here, so I thought for this month's Secret Recipe Club, a drink would be perfect. We just had a little dose of the warmer summer weather here, so a cool fruity drink would hit the spot! I saw that Eliot's Eats had several drink recipes that were appealing to just that...Rosemary Lemonade, Blackberry Margaritas, and Sangria, oh boy, they all sound fantastic. A few weeks ago, my husband and I celebrated his birthday at a local winery and they had amazing sangria, so this was my try at recreating a similar drink. I've never made a Sangria before and that sounded like a good recipe to try out. Thanks Debra from Eliot's Eats for such a great tasting recipe!



Sangria
Recipe adapted from Eliot's Eats 


Ingredients:
1 bottle Moscato
1/4 c. limoncello
1/4 c. Amaretto
1/4 c. agave nectar
club soda (to taste)
1 cup frozen mixed berries
2 apples, cored and chopped (leave the peels on)






















Directions:
Use a big pitcher or a jug that would fit into the refrigerator. Pour the Moscato wine in your designated container. Add limoncello, Amaretto, and agave nectar and stir the liquids to combine. Add the frozen fruit and cut up apples. Set in the refrigerator for at least on hour to let the flavors combine and chill. Before serving add in the club soda. Serve chilled and enjoy. 

 
A big ole jug of Sangria ready for chillin'!

 
 Don't forget to add some fruit in your glass...in my opinion, that is my favorite part of this, and the addition of the club soda, which makes it nice and fizzy refreshing.
