|Yeah, don't take it in the face!|
Raspberry Tequila Sangria! Okay, you know how it goes, at least it's the ingredients for it.
Do you see that Ultimate Mandolin in the shot? Oh yeah, I totally busted it out for some uber-thin slices. I'll admit, my orange was almost too big to use easily, but it fit and I totally made it work.
Check the difference between when I used a knife to thinly slice my lime, and when I used the mandolin. Freaky, right?
In the spirit of a real sangria, I put all of the ingredients (minus the "champagne" and Sprite) in the pitcher to soak up some of the alcohol. I had this sitting about an hour as I waited for Thomas to come home for the day, and as soon as he walked in, I added the bubbly ingredients.
It only took two glasses a piece and we were out for the count. We were so sleepy after dinner that we retired at a ridiculously early hour. It was totally worth it, however, and was a great way to spend an evening after a long day of work. Oh, and it was the day I learned that I was being laid off, so in the long run, completely necessary!
Drink up, kids, it's almost Friday. Cheers!
