A breath of summer in February...

This was to be our "kid free" weekend and there was talk of a quick trip to some sunny locale. Alas, it was not to be and we are here in snowy Ohio dreaming of warm summer days (seed catalogs by my side.)

And girlfriend sent her favorite Sangria recipe and...suddenly it's feels like summer in February here in our little corner of the world.

I immediately dashed to the store and purchased the necessary ingredients, rushed home, and began chopping fruit.

Voila! It's a sangria party at our house! A fresh breeze of summer to perk up our spirits.

Here is Patti's favorite recipe from Very yummy and delicious. Some guacamole and chips just to round out our impromptu party.

Try it!! Just the thing to get us through the winter dohl drums.

ENJOY!! Thanks Patti - great idea!!!

Traditional Red Wine & Citrus Sangria

1 cup fresh orange juice

1/2 cup fresh lime juice

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1/2 cup superfine sugar (I put sugar in the blender)

1/4 cup triple sec

2 oranges, sliced

2 limes, sliced

1 lemon, sliced

1. Combine all ingredients except sliced fruit in a large bowl or pitcher.

2. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, about 2 hours.

3. Fill a large pitcher with ice; add sliced fruit, then pour in sangria over fruit and ice.

4. Makes 5 cups without ice.
