Blog: Mission District Food Tour inspired recipe and pics – September 6th, 2011

Hello everyone! How did everyone spend their Labor Day weekend? After our delicious Mission District Food Tour last week, I thought you might all enjoy some recipes of your own to try! During our visit to Picaro we tried some delicious sangria, which originates from Spain. Try making some of your own!


1 Bottle of red wine

1 Lemon cut into wedges

1 Orange cut into wedges

2 Tbsp sugar

1 Shot brandy

2 Cups ginger ale or club soda

Preparation: Pour wine in the pitcher and squeeze the juice wedges from the lemon and orange into the wine. Toss in the fruit wedges (leaving out seeds if possible) and add sugar and brandy. Chill overnight. Add ginger ale or club soda just before serving.

If you’d like to serve right away, use chilled red wine and serve over lots of ice.

Addition ideas: sliced strawberries, peaches, handful of fresh blueberries, raspberries, kiwi, a shot or two of gin, brandy or rum, a cup of ginger ale, citrus soda
