I am happy.
The party I hosted last night was a great success which is always one of the best feelings in the world.
This White Sangria was one of the drinks I had on offer. Light and refreshing. The perfect poolside and party libation.
I might have to make another batch today.
2 large oranges, 1 cut into ¼-inch-thick slices, the other 1 juiced
1 large lemon, cut into ¼-inch-thick slices
¼ cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier
1 (750-mL) bottle white wine (Pinot Grigio or Chardonnay), chilled
1. Add orange and lemon slices and sugar to a large pitcher; mash gently with a wooden spoon until the sugar dissolves and the fruit releases some juice but is not completely crushed, about 1 minute. Stir in orange juice, liquor and wine. Refrigerate at least 2 hours (up to 8 hours).
2. Before serving, add some ice cubes and stir briskly to redistribute settled fruit and pulp; serve immediately.

I’m all over the band Easter.
The new song Damp Patch is pure, guitar driven heaven.
Check out Easter on Facebook and on the band’s Website, where you can buy the music.
Making this tomorrow for dad’s day cookout!
Well, there were no good juice oranges in the store, so I used my favorite no-pulp OJ, Florida’s Natural, and this still kicks butt. Delicious.
I’m so glad you like the sangria. I want some now!
