When it’s hot, you want something zippy, ice cold and sweet. This Sangria did the trick on Easter Sunday. It was refreshing and the alcoholic tang made you forget about how hot it was outside, except to occasionally slur out “Gee, is it ever HOT!”
It also inspired us to sing this song:
Juicy Fruit Sangria
1 1/2 cups cubed, fresh melon (honeydew, canteloup, watermelon)
3 fuji apples, diced
2 bananas, sliced in half and then into half moon pieces
2 peaches, diced
1 basket strawberries, washed and quartered
Put fruit in a bowl and top with a bottle of your favorite inexpensive champagne. Add 1/2 cup of vodka. Mix with hands to gently coat all fruit. Cover bowl and refridgerate overnight.
Add 4 cups pineapple juice, 1 bottle champagne and the fruit mixture to a pitcher. Stir.
Divide into 6 glasses and enjoy with friends!
