Winter Sangria








































Winter Sangria

One 750 ml bottle of red wine
1 grapefruit (sliced into circles)
1 lemon (sliced into circles)
1 orange (sliced into circles)
1 kiwi (sliced into circles)
Juice of 2 oranges (Appx. ¾ cup)
Juice of 2 lemon (Appx. ½ cup)
1 cup simple syrup
Club soda (to top)

Slice grapefruit, lemon, orange and kiwi. Add fruit and fruit juice to a bowl and pour in one 750 ml bottle of red wine. Next add ½ of the simple syrup (reserve the other half for guests to adjust the sweetness of their individual drinks). Briefly stir mixture and chill for at least 2 hours (overnight is best), to allow for the flavors to fully develop. Serve with a little bit of fruit in each glass. Just before serving top off each glass with club soda (if not using club soda, reduce amount of simple syrup to taste). Give each glass a stir.

  4. If its a real white Christmas I be in my chore clothes out enjoying the sheep and cattle while feeding them, if it's a brown Christmas the time spent with the livestock will be shorter, I will be in my best cowboy regalia to celebrate the season. Merry Christmas

  6. Another favorite memory would have to be the Christmas I got a red velvet dress that my mom broke the bank on. My parents had a fight until he saw me in it, and thought it was totally worth whatever a washing machine or whatever we went with out could have cost. Loved that dress. I was 7.

  30. Davon H. says: "Hi Flannery and Katherine! My fashionably bombed ensemble for the holiday season is a one-shouldered cocktail dress that has a sheer, nude slip that is covered in silver sequins. To complement the dress I will be wearing platform strappy heels that are nude satin, but the wow factor is that the heel is completely covered in gold and silver G-L-I-T-T-E-R, baby! It's a "bam!" effect when I enter the room and as I leave it too!"
