Sangria anyone?

I have not made sangria in for ever, and having a white version I though it would be cool, after all Moscato wine is my favorite wine in the world and having a sangria version to include it would be just perfect.

For those people that are not familiar with this type of wine, let me worn you that it is on the sweet side. For me is just perfect because I have a very sweet tooth and when drinking alcohol I just pretty much have to camouflage the alcohol taste in drinks. Going sweet is the way in which I could do this so this wine is just perfect for me. You can do this with a dry wine as well but I don’t know how it would taste though.

If you want instead of using just juices you can also opt for adding some orange liquor as well. I think that would give it more of a punch. I actually did not try it this way but I am sure it couldn’t hurt! Also, quantities are to taste so you may add more or less of the juices and seltzer lemon water to the sangria.

The nice weather is just barely starting, so be sure to find more cocktail recipes to come to blog soon.

Stay safe and enjoy!

  4. There are several different theories about the origination of the name for Hummingbird cake. Some say that the cake is so delicious it makes you hum with happiness while others think the cake is named because it’s sweet enough for hummingbirds. Another theory is that people hover around the cake similar to the way hummingbirds hover around flowers. Foodtimeline.org notes that perhaps it was named after the way the cake draws people in and is eaten quickly, similar to the eating pattern of those tiny energetic fliers.

  5. Looks fantastic. The name of the cake is due to “the Hummingbird bakery” is its signature cake. They also have a baking book.
