Spain and sangria

summer weekend celebrations begin with Memorial day weekend.  one of the best ways to celebrate summer is with a delicious beverage.

i have used a great recipe over the years and it always seems to be a big hit with guests. traditional sangria from Spain can be made many ways.  i use chilled red wine and mix with orange juice and about 1/4 cup of superfine sugar.

using a very attractive glass pitcher to see the sliced fruit, i add sliced oranges and sliced lemons.  i do make sure to scrub the fruit well before slicing and placing into the pitcher.  add ice and serve.  this is a beverage that can be diluted to taste if some guests like more orange juice and less wine. this sangria could also be served as a punch in a glass bowl.

with that being said, it would be fun to travel to Spain and enjoy the foods of the region.

recently, i was sent the Pimsleur Spanish I program, which is a series of CD’s engineered to make learning Spanish easy.  i have been listening to them over the past few days.  since i have a background in French, it has made the learning easier for me.  the CD’s are sequential and allow time for out loud responses. they allow for the practice of proper speech.  i have been doing one lesson per day and it seems quite simple. this program has been used by members of our government to help with learning the language in ten days. additional reading exercises and links to online materials are also included in the package.

perhaps when i am able to travel to Spain and order sangria, i will feel more comfortable reading directly from the menu after studying this course.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
