Don't miss it!
Once the show was hanging, it was back to the studio to paint. I never picked up a paint brush! I have close to 60 hours on this current nightmare and I sat and stared at it. Studio mate, David Gross, tried to encourage me....that's what studio mates do. But the longer I looked at it, the more flaws I found. I wandered out to my car and took the long way home.
I fixed a treat for myself when I arrived home....a glass of Sangria! Sangria is a traditional wine punch from Spain. I opened a bottle of Somerset Ridge's Buffalo Red, a semi-sweet red wine that is smooth and rich with bold flavors of cherry & plum with a spicy finish. Some sangrias have an extra kick with the addition of brandy, but I find I love it without that kick. That choice will be yours. Give this recipe a try. It is perfect for a summer evening!
Berry Peach Sangría
1 bottle Somerset Ridge Buffalo Red wine (about 3 cups)
1/2 cup orange juice, or juice of 2 large oranges
1/3 cup lemon juice, or juice of one large lemon
3 tablespoons brandy (optional)
1 cup raspberries, blackberries, fresh or frozen
2 peaches, quartered and sliced
12 ounces club soda ( I leave this out most of the time, but it is excellent with it)
In a 2 1/2 quart pitcher, stir together first 4 ingredients. Add berries and refrigerate 2-3 hours to allow flavors to mingle. About 1 hour before serving, add peaches. Add club soda to sangría just before serving. Pour into glasses filled with ice. Garnish with berries and fruit slices.
