Today is an Eat, Knit, Grow first. I have a drink for you, the fun grown-up kind! I am not a big drinker at all, which is probably why there haven't been any cocktails on here yet, but on a hot day at a big BBQ, a glass of sangria sounds delicious and refreshing. This sangria was scoffed at by my Spanish pseudo family who was visiting for being made with white wine, because it's not really Sangria (they still drank it happily though). The other guests loved it for being not too sweet or fruity and perfectly refreshing. Plus as a bonus, once your glass is devoid of liquid, you can nibble on the delectable vodka soaked fruit. This is really the perfect drink for all these hot summer days!
3 cups of orange flavored vodka
2 Gala apple
1/3 cup of sugar
4 bottles of white wine, Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc
Pour the vodka into a large bowl or pitcher. Chop the fruit into small square pieces and add it to the vodka, stirring so all fruit is coated. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand for at least 1 hour, or refrigerate overnight. Stir sugar into the vodka and divide between two pitchers (or pour all into 1 big container). Add wine to vodka and stir. Serve over ice.
