Don’t Judge Me Mondays: Sangretta
Like everyone else, I’ve been consuming Social Media even more than pre-Covid, my “drug of choice” being Instagram. I started following Retta and have enjoyed watching her daily coffee routine, the drama about getting her new pool in, and warranted rants about all the racist crap going on right now. Anyhoo, she recently shared her “Sangretta”, her version of Sangria using what she had on hand (desperate times call for desperate measures, am I right?). I’ve made this drink a couple of times and Retta knows what she’s talking about!
Let’s get to it.
Fill a large tumbler (plastic is great so you can bring it out on the patio or on a stroll around your neighborhood) with ice. Pour in the red wine. Ideally this should not be the pricey red wine you’ve been saving for a special occasion, but you do you.
Now pour in the OJ, Triple Sec, Peach Schnapps, and Limoncello. Retta used Apple Ciroc, but I didn’t have that on hand (nor did I even know what it was, at first!) so I used Limoncello. Now you may be saying “Rachel that seems like a lot of booze,” and you would be right. It’s a pandemic and I think we can all cut ourselves some slack and have that extra boozy drink now and then (and again).
Stir it all together and enjoy! Yes, this drink is boozy, but it doesn’t taste that way and is really refreshing.
I’m going to need some of these as we endure a summer of not going anywhere and keeping the kiddo entertained.
