How to Make Holiday White Sangria

White Holiday Sangria original How to Make Holiday White Sangria

A few weeks ago I was suffering the interwebs and spotted the image above. The first thought in my mind was wow that looks pretty dam good. The second after I read the recipe was ” yea this is watered down wine and its not going to get me white girl wasted”. If you like to be classy and control yourself her is the original recipe.

My version is purer and tastes better!  Warning watch out for the ROSEMARY I used too much and it came out well Rosemaryyyyyy and Herby.

INGREDIENTS

1 Granny Smith apple
1 Cup of Frozen Blueberrys
1 heaping Cup Fresh cranberries
1 large Sprig rosemary( If you are letting it sit over night then you may want to take it out, THIS shit is strong)
1 Bottle Pinot grigio
¼ cup sugar

Instructions

Chop the apples into bit size pieces

Cut the cranberries in half ( you can skip this if you dont like your sangria sour)

Add sugar to taste

Add wine mix and taste

Add frozen blueberries instead of ice. No one wants watered down wine!

Last STEP DRINK UP!!!

White winter Sangria

Now you see how there is a lot of rosemary in my holiday sangria?  DONT USE THAT MUCH. Use Maybe one/ two stems that’s it!

A wine so diverse that it can be served in a wine glass with dinner, heated in a special mug on a cold night, chilled with fruit on a hot summer day or combined with spirits to form an unexpected cocktail.

Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard Wine Tasting

A Few weeks ago One of my friends arranged a wine tour for his wife’s 40th birthday party.  The whole day was a blast minus the traffic and running out of ice for the Arnold Palmers Special Ice Tea.

The most notable and memorable  part was the Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard Wine Tasting . (There may have a few other alcoholic beverage tasted prior too and after which may or may not have limited my memory of the day). Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard is very interesting to say the least the location is fairly large and has  multiple separated areas. Each  area functions that ranged from live music to food.  Most importantly lots of seating space. Each person was given 4 tickets or “Tastings” . I doubled up to a premium on one of my tastes.  I dont remember which one it was  but  my tasting included the Merlot 2007, Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 and  Cabernet Franc 2012.

 

Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard Merlot 2007
Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard Merlot 2007

This Merlot exhibits aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackberry and plum, underscored with slight accents of smoke and vanilla from the oak. The palate is rich and structured with sufficient but mild tannins and a long, lingering finish. It has bottle-aged gracefully and will continue as such for countless years.

Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Cabernet Sauvignon’s richness is first noticeable in its deep red color. It offers up similar richness to the taste with its dark fruit aromas and flavors of black cherry and black currant with dark chocolate. Accents of coffee and smoke can be attributed to the oak influence. The tannins are subtle and firm, giving this wine great structure and superb aging potential.

Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2012
Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2012

Cabernet Franc is softer and fruitier than the Cabernet Sauvignon and its earthier character consists of tastes and aromas of cherry, blackberry and vanilla with an herbal, white pepper and bramble fruit aroma. The tannins are soft and gentle, and the finish is smooth with a rounded palate.

Three Guys From Brooklyn
Three Guys From Brooklyn

Three Guys from Brooklyn. Does not sound like much but its one of the best stores in Brooklyn. Large selection, helpful workers… Blah blah blah. They have a great selection of olives and other pickled products. They are  not like the pickle guy or sahadi’s but what the hell when you just need somethings  above the basics its perfect.

WE ARE NOT BASIC BITCH SAYS NO TO CANNED OLIVES.  LETS REPEAT THAT AGAIN NOT CANNED OLIVES OR EVEN JARS. Olives are supposed to be in barrels not cans. You don’t need to taste the metal or staleness.   You need that fresh, clean, crisp taste that will boost the flavor of your wine and cheese. DONE

The term “Peace Pipe” arose from the Native American and the idea that smoking the pipe signified peace and friendship. It is an “Honor” to be selected to hold a peace pipe. It is believed it will give the keeper great powers as long as they live an honorable life.

Peace Pipe Malbec Reserve  has an intense ruby red color. Complex and elegant nose with a delicate combination of red fruits and spices, combined with notes of vanilla and chocolate. This wine can be a great companion for well-seasoned meats.
