I always look forward to the summer holidays, because they mean lots of picnics and barbecues, and I always love an excuse to eat outside. Its are also a good chance to make patriotic food and drinks. This is the kind of drink that is great to make for a crowd, and could be made for Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, or really any nice summer day.
This recipe and other holiday themed drinks are on punchbowl.
-Pineapple, cut into star shapes
-2 bottles dry white wine
-1 cup Triple Sec
-1/2 cup cherry rum
-1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
-1/2 cup agave syrup
|Use a cookie cutter or a template to cut the pineapple into stars|
|Mix all ingredients together.|
|Chill for at least four hours to let the fruit infuse into the sangria and to allow the fruit to soak up the liquid.|
We made this over the weekend at Becky's lake house and left it to sit in the fridge for over 12 hours throughout the day. I think this one gets better with time and can probably be made up to 24 hours ahead of time. This made about 10-12 servings and was a hit with everyone at the party.
