Mock Sangria

March 5, 2008 at 2:31 am 1 comment

For the girls’ night Mexican dinner I hosted this week, I had limited beverages on hand and a tight budget, but I wanted to provide something more festive to drink than plain old water. 

I remembered that my BF had stocked the fridge with two flavors of Vitamin Water: Strawberry-Kiwi and Acai-Blueberry-Pomegranate.  In a flash of brilliance, it came to me!  I could create a mock Sangria to add some fruity fun to the evening!

I picked up a lemon, a lime and an orange on my way home and got slicing.  I mixed one and a half bottles of each flavor of Vitamin Water in a turquoise bubble glass pitcher.  Then, I added the fruit slices, stirred vigorously and popped the pitcher in the fridge.  I let the flavors blend for a hour or so while I got ready for my gals’ arrival. 

I gave the mixture a final stir before pouring the colorful liquid into pink, tulip-shaped glasses.  It was a hit!  The fruit slices made the “Sangria” tangy and refreshing, and the girls had no clue I’d ad-libbed the entire libation!
