How To Make Red Wine Sangria

INGREDIENTS

2 medium apples
2 medium oranges
1/2 cup brandy
1/4 cup orange liquor, such as Cointreau
1 (750-milliliter) bottle red wine
2 to 3 cups sparkling water, chilled
Ice

INSTRUCTIONS

Cut up the fruit. Cut the oranges and apples into thin slices or wedges. Leave the peels on. Transfer the cut fruit to a pitcher.

Add the brandy. Measure the brandy and pour it over the fruit.

Add the orange liquor. Measure the orange liquor and pour it into the pitcher as well.

Add the wine. Uncork the wine and pour it into the pitcher.

Stir to combine. Stir the liquor, wine, and fruit together.

Cover and refrigerate. Do not taste the sangria now; you will be disappointed! Cover the pitcher and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight. The sangria gets softer, sweeter, and much more delicious overnight in the fridge.

Top with sparkling water. When ready to serve, top off the sangria with sparkling water. Stir gently to combine. Taste and add more if desired. Scoop a few pieces of fruit into each ice-filled glass when serving.

Scream (Movie Review)

This is a horror franchise I didn’t get much into other than the first movie. I remember watching this film back in the late 90s maybe once or twice but that’s it. I haven’t watched it since then nor have I seen any of the sequels. It’s time to rectify that and I plan to watch all of them before the new one comes out or I can get to watch it.
