It’s hot outside. Real hot. And, as much as you want to, you wouldn’t dare drop a handful of ice into your wine. So, what do you do? You make a giant pitcher of cool, refreshing sangria, fire up the grill and call some friends.
Take advantage of all that great summer fruit at the store (or “borrowed” from your neighbors’ tree), slice it up and toss it in a pitcher with Layer Cake Sea of Stones. For that matter, you can make it with any Layer Cake red wine! Or even better yet, make a few different pitchers and have a sangria tasting.
You’ll just need a few things and very little time to make a summer sipper you’ll find hard to put down.
2 bottles Layer Cake Sea of Stones
5 each Valencia oranges
1 each Pink grapefruit
2 each Lemons
2 each Pink lady apples, cored
3 cups Lemon-lime soda
1 cup Triple Sec or orange-flavored liqueur
Leaving the skins on, slice all citrus into thin rings place in jug. Slice apples into thin wedges and place in jug. Add Sea of Stones red wine, lemon-lime soda and orange-flavored liqueur on top of sliced fruit in the jug and let rest in the refrigerator for one to three hours.
Grab a glass, fill it with ice, pour in the Sangria, then sit back and enjoy!
Makes 2 gallons (20-30 8oz glasses)
