|Betty White says she endorses Barack Obama.|
Betty White Sangria
10 servings, 8 oz. each
Like Betty favors Barack, you will "very much favor" this beverage at your next cocktail party.
1/2 cup each freshly squeezed orange juice and lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
4 oz. apple liquor (e.g., Calvados)
1 bottle (1500 ml) white wine (pinot grigio, sauvignon blanc or chardonnay)
16 oz. cold club soda
Mix together juices, sugar, liqueur and brandy in large pitcher 2 min. or until sugar is completely dissolved. Stir in wine; cover and refrigerate.
To serve, fill glasses with ice; add cut-up fruit and sangria. Top each glass with 2 oz. club soda.
For cut-up fruit use sliced strawberries and blueberries for a patriotic look, or use oranges, peaches, halved grapes and whatever fruit you happen to have on hand.
This recipe can be increased in any amount for large gatherings. The flavors are best if you make it 1 or 2 days in advance.
