I think I must have played that Oasis CD, (What’s The Story) Morning Glory, to death. Yes, I love it that much. Those pompous Brothers Gallagher. Brassy attitude, erratic behavior. Typical rockstars.
I just love the word Sangria! I don’t know, it just sounds so exotic and I’ve never heard of it until recently. Then I found out that it is a wine punch with chopped fruits. Because of my religious obligations, I don’t drink anything with alcohol in it and I don’t cook with it either. And the hurray of hurrays came when I read that I can make a non-alcoholic Sangria using fruit juice!
To make this started simply enough with a pitcher of ice. I added some chopped apples and frozen strawberries (leftover fresh strawberries that I put in the freezer for later use). Then came lemon slices and a little bit of lemon juice. I had bought some apple juice which I poured over. Since the apple juice was sweet enough, I didn’t add any honey or sugar syrup. And to make it look pretty, I added some mint.
Ideally, this should be left in the fridge or the flavours to develop. I only have it in there for half hour and we drank it with our weekend lunch. To serve, I pour into glasses along with some of the fruit pieces and then topped with 7-Up. I love this! And the next day, I still had some leftover. It tasted even better, very much fruitier than before.
The kids loved it as well.
