Halloween Sangria

Yes, I have been on sabbatical.  No mixology. Only drinking wine and beer.


I didn’t feel I should write about how to open a bottle of wine.



Or even  how to use the worlds greatest beer opener.



But Halloween is here.  The kid and her posse are begging for sustenance  from strangers.  Unsupervised.   Being proud of this development milestone I have made a special Halloween Sangria.  If you are still unlucky enough to have to accompany your small creature out, please enjoy this  drink in  roadie form.  Store in this.
