Epic Sangria fail.

.

With warm weather approaching a lot of local bars have started serving white wine sangria and I’m making it my mission in life to try them all.

A girl has to have goals.

Not being a huge fan of the heavier red versions, I looked forward to this one…

Kiwi, pear and apple? Yes please.

I should have known something was off when it was served with an orange, and true to form this was the most horrible concoction I’d had in ages.

Do not put Vanilla vodka in Sangria. Ever.

Blech!

That’s the ruination of perfectly good fruit.

  1. A beer or a shot of something is about as adventurous as I get when it comes to alcohol, and not much then. Cathy makes sangria for parties (we’re having one this summer, big flippin’ YAY!) but I don’t think she puts any liquor in it. Do you concoct your own? More importantly, will you let that formula out into the world for the rest of us to enjoy? I’m fairly sure I know someone who would like to know. I’m sorry for your bad experience, I guess it happens.

    1. I rarely make my own as the husband doesn’t like it and that would encourage me to drink the whole thing… but I’ve made a few awesome ones for parties. Blueberry lemonade with vodka for summer and a fabulous autumn version with apple brandy.

    1. My wife drinks sauvignon blanc pretty much exclusively. It tastes good, like grass and citrus and, at 12.5-13.5% ABV, brings more alcohol to the porch than any beer I know of, and I live in a town with LOTS of breweries. This is not to say they’re all good ones. There’s plenty around that’s made for guys who think they have something to prove. All that said, there is no accounting for taste. Slainte’ Oh, and decaf tea? I couldn’t agree more. I drink PG Tips hot, with milk and sugar, all day long. Caffeine is one of my nutritional mainstays, along with hamburgers, fried chicken, pizza and anything made by Little Debbie, that evil temptress. Now I’m hungry. Have a good one.
