How about making a pitcher of Pisco Sour Sangria for the weekend? Sangria always reminds me of my BFF and old roomie, she always loved to make a big batch of Sangria and invite friends over...this recipe definitely calls for an occasion or at least an excuse to make one up. You know me always looking for an excuse to throw a party!!
- 1 bottle fruity dry white wine (try a suavignon blanc)
- 1 1/2 cups Pisco Brandy (Campo de Encanto Pisco...you can get this at Bevmo)
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup lemon-lime simple syrup (see recipe below)
- 1 Granny Smith apple, cored, halved and thinly sliced
- 1 lime, thinly sliced
- small bunch of mint
Mix together all ingredients in a pitcher, cover, and refrigerate for 4 to 24 hours.
