Peach, Pineapple & Grapefruit White Sangria

2 Aug

Summer refreshment: cold and delicious sangria, scroll down for a recipe…

1 Apple (we used Fuji)

1 Large Grapefruit

2 1 Peach

1 cup of pineapple

2 Bottles of white wine (we used )

1.5 cups of ginger ale (optional)

Clean and cut all fruit into small cubes/chunks and place into desired container, add wine and place in refrigerator to cool for at least 30 minutes. The longer it sits, the more time the fruit has to soak in the wine. Add ginger ale last. Serve cold and enjoy!

Summer Refresher: Ode to Exedus

5 Jul

This summer pick-me-up is refreshing with a kick! Perfect for a hot day at the beach… too bad we aren’t in Jamaica…

This drink is packed with ginger, which is considered a stimulant and good for digestion (as well as other medicinal uses). Plus, it tastes great!

Ode to Exedus – Recipe Serving Size 4

In a large cocktail shaker combine the following ingredients:

1/2 cup freshly chopped ginger

2 squeezed limes (the juice and all!)

1 squeezed lemon (the juice and all!)

5 shots of dry gin

Handful of fresh spearmint (grind or chop into very fine pieces – maybe even stick in a food processor)

1/4 cup cane sugar

Splash of Ginger Beer (If ginger beer is too strong for you, can be replaced with ginger ale)

1/2 cup water

*Tip: If you have a mortar and pestle, grind the spearmint and sugar together before adding to shaker

Shake it all up and fill 4 glasses halfway with the mixture. This gives a little freedom to fill the rest with ice and more ginger beer – maybe a little more gin?

Enjoy!
