The Best Sangria

I love a good Sangria.  It’s always so refreshing.  And, what’s there to complain about?  Ingredients include Red Wine, Lemonade, cold soda, Brandy, schnapps and fruit.  Everything about this recipe screams party.  Though it’s normally a drink served in the summer time, I created this Peach Sangria for the fall.  I felt like this would be a great Thanksgiving holiday drink served with all of the traditional recipes that have been handed down to us throughout the years and once you try it, I think you’ll agree.

My Sangria Secret

A good Sangria recipe is going to be packed with flavor and sweetness that balances your meal and should always be served cold.  That’s why I like to make this chillable red wine with Frozen Fruit, instead of fresh.  Sliced peaches can act as ice cubes if they’re previously frozen and they add a wonderful flavor to the mix.  The Lemonade, Mountain Dew and Peach Schnapps adds a wonderful sweet and sour to the wine.  The Brandy binds all of the ingredients together and makes this drink what it is.  Technically, it’s not a sangria with out it.

Peach Sangria Ingredients:

Brain Hemorrhage Shots for Halloween

Youtube Brain Hemorrhage 2

Brain Hemorrhage Shots are a real fun and scary way to start your Halloween this year.  This drink has just a few ingredients that make it very tasty and sweet so I think you’ll enjoy this little recipe.  Peach Schnapps goes in first, followed by Bailey’s and Cream to give it the floating brain in formaldehyde look.  Then you drizzle a light layer of Grenadine over the top to give it a bloody illusion.  But, you don’t want to drop in too much because the cherry flavor will overpower the drink and make it taste like cough syrup if you add too much.

I’ve also included two links for those that like to barbecue on Halloween.
