CSA in my Sangria

6 May

What better way to consume your apple a day than with booze? I thought so, too.

Look how much happier those apple chunks are when floating in a pleasant concoction of cabernet, B&B, a splash of vanilla, a whisper of sugar, and some rather under-ripe strawberries.

Star-shaped ice cubes are key to any awesome sangria.

Recipe:

1.5 cups of 2- or 3-buck Chuck, depending on your state. I used the Charles Shaw Cabernet Sauvignon.

3 tbsp Benedictine or B&B

1/2 cup chopped apples

4 or 5 big strawberries, chopped

1.5 tsp sugar

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

star-shaped ice cubes.

Combine, swish, sip, chew.  Happy Cinco de Mayo.
