Thirsty Thursday: Mother’s Day Sangria
It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.
Luckily, with things like flower delivery services and online subscriptions to magazines or whatever, it’s okay that you forgot about Mother’s Day until just now. But now that we’re three days away from celebrating the most important woman ever, it’s time to get a plan in place, preferably complete with Sunday brunch and drinks for a crowd.
This White Sangria is the perfect brunch punch. Crisp white wine, brandy and slices of citrus are all dumped in a bowl with ice. It’s easy, delicious and totally something Mom will love.
Bottoms up, folks!
- 2 (750-ml) bottles white wine, chilled
- 1 cup brandy
- 2 navel oranges, sliced
- 1 lemon, sliced
- 1 lime, sliced
- 1/4 cup superfine sugar
Pour the wine and brandy over the fruit and sugar in a large serving bowl. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Stick a ladle in the sangria so people can serve themselves and have a full bucket of ice by the side of the bowl. (Don't let the ice run out.)
