WONDERFUL!!! A wonderful punch made with white wine, mango and orange slices. Peach schnapps, cognac and ginger ale round out this summer party drink.
A nice bevvie for when the girls get together.
I found a good sangria recipe and headed to the off license to purchase the alcohol. In the queue, ahead of me, was a man who said he has been a bartender for 20 years now, and that my recipe needed a few touch-ups if I wanted to make it like the Pros. So, here is what he professed to me, muchos thanks to the other submitters for their delicious versions.
Calimocho, or kalimotxo, is a very popular Spanish cocktail that is served in many bars and prepared by Spanish youth during traditional 'botellon' parties. Calimocho originated in the Basque region of Spain but has spread throughout the entire country and to many other parts of the world. Coca-Cola is the 'authentic' cola for preparing calimocho.
Glögi, the Finnish version of glogg, is a fragrant and warming mulled wine. Perfect for Christmas, or all through the winter!
Anyone who has been to a European Christmas market knows this festive mulled wine. Let it warm you up throughout the winter!
The old German classic Christmas and winter warmer. Boozy, spicy and indulgent. Similar to the British mulled wine. Great at a Christmas dinner party or for Bonfire Night as a winter warmer.
This is an authentic version of the popular sangria. You can add any fruit that you want, but I find that apples and pears absorb all the rum. I have much success with Burgundy wine and white rum, though spiced rum is nice too.
A refreshing drink that is typically drunk at bull fights in some parts of Spain. It's perfect for summer parties. You don't have to use the same fruit each time. Oranges and strawberries work well too.
I live in Barcelona and was able to watch a bartender make sangria in a sangria bar one night. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
A very typical spanish sangria, with a twist at the end.. I make this for parties and bbqs, I always make a 5 litre bucket it's cheap and very cheerful, always a hit!! It has vodka but the sangria is so fruity that it won't be noticed.
A tasty twist on the typical Spanish red sangria. Your summer isn't complete without this!
I often make some sangria when I have friends coming over. It is not too expensive and everyone loves it. With a combination of apple, banana, kiwi fruit and lemon, as well as peppercorns, nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon - it is a flavourful, incomparable sangria!
This is sangria, Spanish style! Fruit, red wine and brandy combine for a refreshing beverage on a sunny day.
A very fresh and delicate twist on the bellini cocktail to welcome your friends. You can't go wrong with fruit and Champagne!
Sugar syrup is used in many cocktail and cake recipes, and is also used for making glacé fruit.
Most of the 'Trou Normand' recipes you see call for sorbet, but the real Trou Normand is just Calvados without sorbet at all. Trou Normand is a palette cleansing 'break' between courses, which is prevalent in many homes and restaurants throughout Normandy. I like Calvados from Domfront, a small city in Normandy, which has a wonderful flavour.
This recipe is from my mother, it's been in the family for over 30 years. I haven't made it in a long time but decided to make it for friends this year.
This is a recipe from my mother's recipe book from 70 years ago.She made this drink ready for the workers in the hayfield, and it was welcomed by them on a hot sunny day, and the smell of this drink is so evocative of the sweet smell of hay being worked. This is so easy to make, and costs so little, and is ready to drink after a few days, but if kept, becomes fizzy and alcoholic. The children love it, but make sure they drink it soon!
I love watermelon in the summer, it is the perfect snack for a hot, sunny day. I was inspired to make my favourite summer snack into a cocktail. This sweet, fresh, pink hued cocktail has all the sparkle and zing that would please your guests at a summer bbq!
