Nothin' better on the Side with Q than BEER...BUT!!!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Greetings all,

If I'm Smokin' or Eatin' Q, I usually have a case of Cold Ones close by.


BUT, when the mood strikes or my Mrs' and/or Cheffy Daughter's join in it's....


Smokin' Great SANGRIA!


In a Pitcher large enough to hold a Gallon plus Fruit, combine...


1C Brandy or more...cheapo E&J, Christian Bros.

1C Triple liqueur.

2C Apple Juice or Cider

2C Orange Juice...Fresh or Simply Orange

1-2 Sliced Oranges...Lemons and Limes, Optional.

1-2 Diced Apples

Red Wine to FILL...Riunite Lambrusco is my fav.

*NOTE*  You will use most of the 3 Liter Bottle! Or, if you have room, dump it all!

Additionally, if you choose a really Dry Red Wine, you may need to add a bit of Sugar. The Lambrusco is on the sweet side so no additional sugar is needed. 


Mix well and CHILL WELL...I stick it in the Freezer for an hour or more.


"CAUTION"  This goes down smooth and will kick your BUTT!

Thank you for the invite, Oldschool', I ran a Mapquest from Harrisburg to Toledo. For me to justify 7 hours and 426 miles at $4+ a gallon, you better make some KILLER Q, or the only bones gettin' picked will be mine after my lovely wife dumps my body somewhere near the state line.

I'll add some pics from the next batch. And congrats on sobriety.
