Las Bebidas: Sangria Mexicana
¡Anoche nos brindamos por . . . ! (Tonight we toast to . . . !)
¡Salud a Alex, mi novio quierido (my beloved boyfriend)! For giving me this blog as a Valentines day gift and for purchasing gabrielaskitchen.com today. What a thoughtful man.
¡Salud a ustedes! (A toast to all of you)! I hope you will continue to visit often. Please bear with me over the next few weeks as I continue to work full-time by day and happily grind away at overhauling this site by night.
Sangria Mexicana simpler than the Spanish Sangria you might be used to, Mexican Sangria is essentially sparkling limeade and red wine.
*adapted from Rick Bayless’ Authentic Mexican
In a large glass pitcher juice 8 limes. Add 5 Tablespoons sugar and 2 cups sparkling water. Add 5 cups red wine (this part makes me giggle because it fizzles and foams). Serve over ice . . . y brindar (make a toast)!
