Christmasy Apple Cinnamon Sangria
Hey Y'all (yep still trying this out)!! It's almost Christmas! What are you bringing to your Aunt Edna's? Do you have a go-to dish that you concoct to bring to family parties? For me I bring one of two things, hoagie dip or my famous cinnamon apple sangria. This year it's sangria all the way!
And luckily for you I am sharing my recipe for you to shock and awe your fam with the best Christmasy- most festive cocktail ever!
What you need:
Sangria Pitcher or Jar
4 bottles of red wine (I prefer Cab)
A bag of apples
4 large oranges
A bag of lemons
A bag of limes
Orange or berry flavored seltzer (1 liter) OR White Claw if you want a little more booze
I wish I has an exact recipe but I don't. I just make it until it tastes good. This is why I am a better cook than baker! Basically you pour in the 4 bottles, add the seltzer and as much fruit as you want. Throw in a few cinnamon sticks and as much cinnamon as you like. Let it sit and chill overnight, this part is important. Do not put ice in it, put ice in the cups and pour!
Merry Christmas Babes!
I am a red wine drinker but in the summer it's too dang hot! So naturally I was drinking a lot of seltzers, until they started hurtingmy stomach really bad. Not even when I was drinking them, but when I wasn't. I was having pains, throwing up & not eating because it hurt too bad. I realized that's what it was, the overdoing of seltzers. So I switched to Rosé or Sauvignon Blanc!
The good thing about these are good pinks & whites can be cheap AND good! So this weekend I chose 4 wines under $10! One of them is under $5!!! I did a taste testing & really loved all of them. I prefer a dry, flat wine which all of these are.
So I am going to focus more on what I have been eating this year. But in a nutshell as far as workouts go, I do CYCLEBAR 2-3 times a week, 2 of these include workouts for arms. I don't like weight lifting, I like doing more cardio, body workouts so I will use the PELETON app to do some HIIT workouts 1-2 times a week on top of the CB. The days I do not do CB I do the HIIT or jog 1.5-2 miles. I recently finished my first 5k of 2021 through a vineyard at 37 min. It was not easy, but was fun!
I feel like everyone had found their "thing" during the 2020 quarantine° my "thing" is making margaritas, specifically spicy ones. I was infusing my own tequila with jalapenos for either watermelon or pineapple spicy margs. I became quite the mixologist and muddler!
A few weeks ago I was at Whiskey Joe's beach bar and I ran into a tequila rep who offered me a shot. Umm YES please. It was a spicy tequila and IT WAS AMAZING. I ended up getting two bottles and created a recipe to share with y'all. I never ever use margarita mix, that will tear your stomach UP. There is way too much sugar in those, trust.
