I'm pretty sure NOTHING says "it's 5am on a Monday morning!" like a cocktail recipe. But here we are, it's 5am on a Monday morning and I'm sharing a cocktail recipe.
My mom was in town this weekend which pretty much always means non-stop projects. This time we tackled my workspace. We got my office taken apart and put back together in a much more organized fashion. In the before and after photos it's going to look like nothing changed but WOW, it's better. I am working on creating a space that WORKS for how I currently work. It's a novel concept, I know. I can't wait to share more.
The other thing we did was make sangria out of our leftover New Year's Eve champagne. It turned out great so I thought I would share here (while I wait for a few more things to "complete" the office post).
To make you'll need :
- 2 bottles of champagne (or white wine) (or obviously, red wine)
- 2 small oranges (or one large)
- 1 apple
- 1 lemon
- club soda
Slice fruit into thin pieces (leaving the peel and rinds on). Throw into the bottom of a pitcher. Add your champagne (or wine of choice). Cover with plastic wrap and allow to soak in the fridge for at least two hours.
When you're ready to serve, fill about a half glass with the mix (be sure lots of fruit gets in!) and top off with club soda to taste. Technically, the club soda isn't necessary, but for some reason it seems to highlight the fruit flavor even more. Especially helpful when you're using white wine.
Cheers! Let's roll through this week.
