Friends, Food and a perfect Cocktail!

It was a phase when M was enthusiastic about learning how to make cocktails. He even bought a book called 'Shaken, classic cocktails-shaken not stirred'! And one fine day, M, along with a friend of ours, decided to make us girls some good homemade cocktails. After a long discussion and everyone suggesting their favourites, they chose to make Sangria (two reasons, we had just had some at a Mexican restaurant and we loved it and it was the simplest in the book!) Anyways, they got
out their cocktail kit, shook and stirred and made some really potent Sangria and served it to us with a string of brags and boasts. We thoroughly enjoyed it, the cocktail that is ;-)

Here's the recipe as it appears in the book -

juice of 1 orange
juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp caster sugar
ice cubes
1 orange, thinly sliced
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 bottle red wine, chilled

Shake the orange and lemon juice with the sugar and transfer to a large bowl or jug.

When the sugar has dissolved, add a few ice cubes, sliced fruit and wine.

Marinate for 1 hour if possible, and then add lemonade to taste and more ice.

I'm sending this to Ria's Let's Celebrate Event.

Hello Divya! I found this blog in Foodista and followed it here. This is actually a cool cocktail recipe, its so cool I shared it over my face book friends and they loved it! (I hope you won’t mind about that) By the way, did you know you can place more Foodista widget? A kitchen buddy of mine blogs her recipe too and her readers doubled when she kept placing Foodista widget at the end of her blog. Nice isn’t it?
