You Know You Want Some

Louisa’s* Sangria Recipe

7 Liters** of red wine (nothing too fancy)
1 L- apple brandy
1 L- orange juice (best with pulp)
0.5 L- lemon juice (concentrate is fine)
1 L- apple juice
3 lbs. of oranges (optional: 1 lb. Lemons)
3 cups of sugar

11 liters total volume + fruit = need about a 15 liter container

Dissolve sugar in 2 cups of very hot water
Chop fruit and squeeze out juice
Add parts to Sangria

Chill overnight

* Louisa is my neighbor. She makes the best Sangria I've ever tasted.
** 1 Liter = 0.264 gallons. This recipe makes approximately 3 (2.904) gallons of Sangria.
*** Now updated to include picture of finished product!

Yes, it's in a bucket. I don't have a five gallon punch bowl - do you? Can I borrow it?
Yes, I bought the bucket new and scrubbed it before using it.
Yes, it takes up practically all of my fridge.
Yes, I taste-tested it - and it. is. yummy.

If only red wine did not give me a headache so bad that I would almost prefer to just beat my head against a brick wall.

So can I come to your house for some? Like in this exact moment. How about you pass me some through the computer. How cool would that be?

But how much time do you need to factor in to do all those converions?

Yuck, math.

Manic Little typer said...

Um, yeah. Conversions.
I really wish Blogger allowed you to edit comments.
