Summertime Sangria

From cool Sangria to a quiet morning cup of tea, there are tips and recipes in my E book
Herbs in a Healthy Home on Amazon to create drinks using the herbs in your garden.
Make this non-alcoholic by substituting the wine for a sparkling beverage and adding
a bit more sugar.  Have fun experimenting with available seasonal fruit and berries.
ere's my fav recipe for my favourite summertime drink.

Sangria
I cut up the fresh fruit in the morning and have it soak in the liquor during the day.
Making the rest of the Sangria just before cocktail hour is a breeze and
leaves plenty of time left to swing on the backyard bench.
1 lemon, chopped finely
1 orange, chopped finely
1 cup of berries, frozen or fresh
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 oz. sweet liqueur
2 cups of juice (orange or 5 Alive)
2 cups of wine (red or white)
Sprig of mint for garnish

Place fruit, liqueur and brown sugar in a large glass pitcher. Leave in fridge for the day.
Just before serving, pour in juice and wine. Stir and serve in tall chilled glasses with a spoon.

Add a fresh sprig of a flowering herb just before serving makes your drinks distinctive and beautiful.
