There is a group of us girls, that use to work in the same kitchen.
After the great kitchen shake-up of 2010, we were split up and moved around. A few girls moved up to a head cook position and got their own kitchen, and few transferred to other kitchens. I stayed the same. Same school, same job, different co-workers. But even though were not at the same school anymore, we’re still a tight bunch of friends. We make time to get together. And that is what happened Sunday night.
It was the a 3 day weekend and the girls got together!
We had another bonfire party. There was food, fun, and laughter.
And there was Sangria.
It sure took this beverage up a notch. It has vodka and rum in the red and white wine mix along with a simple syrup. And lot’s of fruit!
It was delicious.dangerous.
Like grown-up kool-ade!
Next time I throw a party, I’m going to be playing with Sangria recipes.
You can use any kind of fruit you fancy. I cant wait to try fresh peaches.
You can use red wine, white wine, or even a sparkling wine. Just be sure to use a wine that you would enjoy drinking by itself.
You can add the extra hoochie or just a fruit concentrate.
And everyone enjoyed the sangria!
But what happened at the bonfire…
stays at the bonfire!
