First of all, let me just say that I am not a drinker. As a matter of fact, I’ve only finished one drink in my lifetime and felt extremely sick afterward (actually, it was probably because I had bad fish right before). Since then, I only take sips every now and then of my DB’s drink. Liquor is just not my thing. It tastes bad, doesn’t make me feel good, and it’s just a ton of empty calories. I say, save the calories for a red velvet cupcake!
The three drinks that I will make an exception for are Japanese beer, champagne sherbet ice cream floats, and my DB’s grandma’s sangria. When I first moved up to Berkeley, I had a craving for sangria so I decided to give it a go.
Although this one was good, it wasn’t my DB’s grandma’s. I added more fruit and backed down on the liquor, but the recipe is mainly from AllRecipes.
