Sangria

Lorikeet does make a great base for Sangria! Here's the recipe:

pjpink's sangria

1/4 to 1/2 cup orange flavored liqueur (I used Gran Gala, but Grand Marnier, Cointreau, or Triple Sec should serve you well)
1 to 2 cups orange juice (the fresh squeezed kind is preferable)
1 bottle Lorikeet Sparkling Shiraz (if you can't find the sparkling, select a very jammy Australian still Shiraz)
1 lemon, thinly sliced and deseeded
1 orange, thinly sliced and deseeded

Put everything in a pitcher and stir. Serve over ice. Repeat, if needed.

This sangria is very strong. It's super yummy, but pace yourself or at least make sure you have eaten enough already to soak up the alcohol. :)

Yes, sangria is a very sneaky alcoholic mixture. Because it's cold and fruity, it's oh so easy to guzzle. But a great way to get a little tipsy in the summer (as long as you are not driving). When I was in Spain many years ago, the sangria was laced with rum. Talk about a knock out punch!
