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 Sec...orange 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!
