Since joining a wine club, I’ve grown my stockpile of wine and have been experimenting with making different varieties of sangria. This combination was delicious, refreshing and takes advantages of the fruit that’s available right now. My mom who is not a big drinker sampled it and said it was really good – it wasn’t too sweet and the little hint of basil was unexpected.
Do you prefer red or white sangria? I’m looking to experiment more and would love to make varieties of sangria my readers would like to try!
I felt like a kid on Christmas morning waiting for my first shipment for wine from Direct Cellars. I impatiently stalked my UPS delivery driver and was worried when he didn’t make his normal morning deliveries. When he pulled up outside my house, I jumped out the door to greet him – I’m sure he was thinking “why is this lady running out to greet me?” – but after I said I was waiting for my first wine shipment, he totally understood!
I made this glazed ham for Easter, but it would be perfect for dinner or any other family meal you have coming up. It’s super easy to make and the glaze is so good….I could eat it with a spoon. The combination of the wine and peach preserves with the mustard all blend together and becomes a thick glaze on a spiral ham.
