Fall Sangria

A Thirsty Spirit is back after a summer hiatus.  Here are some food and beverage related summer highlights:

Image

This was our ABV 4th of July combo. Yep, that’s a blue beer. Our dog had miso cream cheese, scallions, and potato sticks.

Checking out veraison at Red Tail Ridge at the end of July.

Image

Eating my weight in seafood on a trip to Northern Spain in August.

Image

Those Spaniards make a mean cafe con leche.

Image

The love for food over there is so strong that we were able to get this amazing looking (and delicious) breakfast at a gas station!

Image

And, of course, the wine and cocktails weren’t too shabby, either. This is a Negroni from one of Madrid’s classic cocktail bars, Museo Chicote.

Image

My favorite beverage of the trip, however, was cider. Here’s Noah practicing his pouring technique.

Image

My first US Open. Stocking up on cocktails during a rain delay. Thanks to the weather, I got to see Sharapova and Roddick in one day.

Image

Catching lunch in Montauk.

And, now to the point of this posting, Fall Sangria.  

Image

Corey made me a simple syrup with cinnamon, allspice, clove, nutmeg, star anise and fennel seed. He also cooked down apples, pears and cranberries with a little bit of sugar.

Image

I combined the fruit and the syrup with Chardonnay, white Port and lemon juice, and voila, Fall Sangria at ABV.
