Whether you’re looking for the perfect cocktail to serve at your reception or just a fun way to ring in 2010, check out these two recipes, courtesy of iPhone app 8,500+ Drink & Cocktail Recipes by Webworks and Applications.
Red Wine Sangria
1 1/2 liters red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon)
1 cup sugar
1 large lemon, sliced
1 large orange, sliced
1 large apple, cut into thin sections
3-4 oz. plain brandy
Mix wine, sugar and fruit, and let sit in the fridge, ideally for 18-24 hours. The mixture will have a somewhat syrupy consistency. Before serving, stir in brandy and cut the mixture with soda water until it has a thinner, more wine-like consistency. Serve from a pitcher in wine glasses.
1 part blackberry vodka
5 parts lemonade
If you have time, crush half of your blackberries and combine them with the lemonade the night before. Strain the blackberry parts out of the lemonade prior to adding vodka. Add whole blackberries for extra aesthetics and taste.
