I know, I know, I haven’t been blogging. Now that the kid is back at school, I have more time to do the fun things. Such as, having an old fashion with a buddy of mine. We were discussing cocktails. ( We had already discussed kids and spouses.) He told me the secret to his Sangria is Strawberry nectar. Hmmm. So I borrowed his secret ingredient and ran with it.
This glass is raised to you MH.
1 bottle of Apothic Red
1 can of Jumex strawberry nectar
2 limes thinly sliced
1 plum thinly sliced
1 12 oz bag of frozen mixed berries
1/3 cup of orange vodka.
1 lt of spicy ginger soda.(non alcoholic)
Mix first 6 ingredients in a 2 lt pitcher. Let rest for 1-3 hours so berries melt, dilute and absorb some of the alcohol. Before serving pour in a little over half of the ginger soda. Stir. Pour over a glass of ice and top off with a little more ginger soda.
