Super Fruity Sangria

This card is for the Stamping 411 challenge, but I found another challenge site last night - Peachy Keen Stamps challenge. The current challenge (29) is to use a summer recipe. Well, here we are deep into winter... which is actually a great time to be thinking of summer recipes. Winter can be especially long and hard when there is no Christmas to look forward to and be preparing for, and I have a very wonderful friend who finds wet cold days kinda depressing. So, after a week of being rained on fairly constantly, I thought of her for this wonderful "Super Fruity Sangria" recipe and very funky summery card.

And, finally, I am using my very cool boobie girls!
Ingredients: various cardstock scraps, chocolate chip DSP, Tangerine Tango cardstock and inks. The main ingredient here were tools: my very versatile CM punches. Large and mini circles, hearts, sweetheart maker, galaxy maker, friendship punch, bubble maker, and tag maker. I'm finding I can make just about anything, if I just think about it long enough!

Here is the Fruity Sangria recipe... I can't wait to use it myself...
Super Fruity Sangria

1 Bottle of your favourite white wine
1 Lemon cut into wedges
1 Orange cut into wedges
1 Lime cut into wedges
1 Peach cut into wedges
1 Cup sliced strawberries
1/2 Cup lemonade or limeade
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 shots of apricot, peach or "berry" flavored brandy
2 Cups ginger ale
Optional: one can of diced pineapple pieces with juice

This Sangria recipe maximizes the fruit content and adds a new twist, using a white wine, instead of the traditional reds. Buckle-up for a fruit-punch like flavour that is perfect for a BBQ this summer.

Preparation:
Pour wine in the pitcher and squeeze the juice wedges from the lemon, orange and lime into the wine. Toss in the fruit wedges (leaving out seeds if possible) and add sliced peaches, strawberries limeade/lemonade, sugar and brandy. Chill overnight. Add ginger ale and ice just before serving. If you'd like to serve right away, use chilled white wine and serve over lots of ice.
