Sangria Recipe!


Sangria

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Sangria
 (Spanish: Sangría) is a wine punch typical of Spain and Portugal.
 It normally consists of wine, chopped fruit, a sweetener, and a small
amount of added brandy.
In the case of fruits, they are chopped or sliced such as orange, lemon, lime, apple, peach,
melon, berries, pineapple, grape and mango. A sweetener such as honey, sugar,
simple syrup, orange juice is added. Instead of brandy, other liquids such
as Seltzer, Sprite or 7 Up may be added.

[edit]
Because of the variation in recipes, sangria's alcoholic content can vary greatly. 
The ingredients in sangria vary, particularly in the type of fruit used, the kind of spirits 
added (if any), and the presence or lack of carbonation.Variations
White wine can be used instead of red, in which case the result is called sangria blanca or, 
as in Argentina, clerico. Some recipes that use heavier reds can be lightened by mixing a 
bottle of white in the mix. In some parts of Northern Spain, sangria is called zurra and is 

  • made with peaches or nectarines [1]. In most recipes, wine is the dominant ingredient and
  •  acts as a base. In some regions of Portugal, cinnamon is also added with the sweetener.
  • Mulled wine can be used to provide a rich full-bodied taste, chilled with orange juice, lemonade
  •  and a sliced pear to add sweetness.
  • Preparation consists of cutting the fruit in thin slices or small cubes, then mixing in advance 
  • all ingredients except for ice and carbonated sodas. After several hours, or a full day in a 
  • refrigerator to allow time for the fruit flavors to blend with the rest of the ingredients, the ice
  •  and any last-minute ingredients are added and the drinks are poured.
  • A non-alcoholic version of sangria is made from wine grapes, carbonated water, essence 
  • of lemon, and cane sugar.
  • Sangaree (drink) is a similar drink associated with the West Indies and the name 
  • sangaree is an archaic English name for sangria itself.[2]

[edit]
Serving

Sangria is served throughout Spain and Portugal during summer, and in the southern and
eastern parts of the countries year-round. In these places it is a popular drink among
tourists at bars, pubs and restaurants where it is often served in 1-litre pitchers or other
 containers large enough to hold a bottle of wine plus the added ingredients. A lid or other
 strainer for the container helps prevent the fruit and ice cubes from falling into the glass.
Among the Spanish and Portuguese, sangria is most typically served at informal social
gatherings, much like punch, from a punchbowl. Sangria is often served with a wooden
spoon, used to get fruit out of the bottom of the punchbowl or pitcher. Sangria is also
commonly served in Mexico, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Chile, and Argentina.
Bottled sangria can be bought in some countries. In the parlance of EU administrators,
such products are referred to as "aromatised wines".
Sangria has become popular in the UK, with several supermarkets
stocking it during summer months.

Piña colada

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The piña colada, a drink created in Puerto Rico (meaning strained pineapple in spanish:
 piña, pineapple + colada, strained) is a sweet, rum-based cocktail made with rum, 
coconut cream, and pineapple juice, usually served either blended or shaken with ice. 
It may be garnished with a pineapple wedge, a maraschino cherry or both. 
The piña colada has been the official beverage ofPuerto Rico since 1978.[1

Your the most inappropriate person I have ever met!

Um am I? No ha ha I'm not talking about me! Or am I? Nope. I'm not! But there is definitely some inappropriate people out there. The one that always says random things that haven't been thought through to their full extent. Like; "Oh when's the baby due?" And the person isn't preggers.
Or; "Have you ever used Viagra?" To someone you've just had sex with!!!!
And then; "Should we get out of this booshwa shit hole?" And the manager of the posh establishment  is within ear shot and is sending you daggers.
Mmmm yep, it happens! Okay. It's me!!!! LOL






Booshwa ~ Fancy way of saying bullshit For instance if someone is speaking of shit they do not know about your would say Man, you're talkin that booshwa. Or....
www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=booshwa - Cached

The writing is on the wall!


Don't speak.....

Write instead!
I find that I can write better what I feel and think rather than say it aloud. I suffer from foot in mouth disease and if I write it down I can better arrange how it comes out.

That's very nostalgic but it comes down to one simple issue!

It would be nice if I could rely on family and friends purchasing the 100 copies of Gold Digger, but it looks like it's not going to happen. I have approx 20 days to sell 50 more books and I'm not confident that it's going to happen. As previously mentioned I assumed selling 100 books to family and friends would be a walk in the park, but when it comes to coughing up the meager $30 which is the cost of a dinner, ciggies or a few magazines. Not that many are willing to help out, even with the gentle hints, then emails, Facebook posts and eventual pleading. It's like getting blood out of a stone.
However I will continue to try and cal joy and entice people to buy my book, even till the 11th hour, upon which  I will personally purchase the remaining copies of my fabulous book in order to get the ball rolling and start the printing process.
For more on what happens next please refer to previous blog posts with Gold Digger in the tagline.

That's right~ you saw what you saw!

and your snap button dress is practically ripped from your body without a second thought to the fact that your standing in a bar with total strangers surrounding you....

I blame it on my A.D.D Baby!

When I want something, I want it. When I want to talk to someone, I ring them or text them. Sometimes I can send a continuous roll of texts as ideas, thoughts and utter bullshit comes to my head...not hassling just saying!
For some reason my verbal diarrhea can be misconstrued and people think its weird or strange that I have alot to say or that I would like replies to some of these said messages.
I don't see the problem. For those of you that have been victim to my rantings and or nice messages HERE THIS......
I like people! Love chatting, writing, crapping on about everything but its all in good fun and not to be taken too seriously. If I want to hang out with you, take it as a compliment. I only spend time with people that I truely enjoy the company of and I find you interesting/fun/nice or cool.

There's just something about him that makes me want to lash out irrationally!

Sometimes you can unfortunately meet some twat that thinks he is so damn hot that your lucky enough (according to him of course) to have the pleasure of being in his company. He looks at you like he would rather be anywhere but here and it's like dude~ the feelings mutual.... I hate guys that think their hot shit when actually they look really ugly to me.

What is a cocktail?


cocktail is a mixed drink typically made with a distilled beverage (such as gin,vodkawhiskeytequila, or rum) that is mixed with other ingredients. If beer is one of the ingredients, the drink is called a beer cocktail.
Cocktails contain one or more types of liqueurjuicefruitsaucehoneymilk orcreamspices, or other flavorings. Cocktails may vary in their ingredients from bartender to bartender, and from region to region. Two creations may have the same name but taste very different because of differences in how the drinks are prepared.

I blame it on my own surprise.....

Being needy is human nature. Everyone has needs, and everyone wants to be needed, and need things from other people. Being too needy can push people away, but because everyone has different opinions on what is okay and what is classed as too needy it can cause confusion.
Some days I don't need anything from anyone else, but their are times that I need alot of things...love, sex, friendship and cuddles. It's hard to line it all up and have a harmonious life.

Regina Spektor - "Samson" [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

I should be back in time, just not necessarily conscious!

Sometimes when you need a break, alcohol is a fun way to do it.....
I'm not condoning alcoholism in any way - I'm just saying having a few drinks or 6 is an awesome way to blow off some steam or escape every once in a while!

Chaotic Motion

Everything's always moving so fast. Life, time, moments. One minute your looking forward to an event or significant moment, the next it's over and you've moved on. The chaos that surrounds me is everlasting, ever changing - it's total chaotic motion!

And so I went and let you blow my mind....

And I know I blew your mind. You liked me, wanted me, thought about me, and then you freaked out!
After two years of this on and off connection that just wont seem to fizzle out, I lay awake wondering what your thinking. Knowing you intimately but not really knowing you. We share so little outside the bedroom anymore in case we get too close again. Nothing is ideal and there is so much to stop this from bring something ~ I cant help but think about you. I want to smell you, hug you, bite you. I cant help but think the distance we have between us may have run its course if we had let it, spent more time together, let each other be annoyed by silly things that would have been said and done. But we are stuck in sexual limbo ~ letting ourselves float around, this could go on for years or maybe it will just run its course.
The sex is amazing - but I'm confused. Is it good because we did get to know each other first. Those five months when we did dare to share our souls, thoughts, lives, where amazing, needed and wanted.
When that part ended because you liked me and I liked you and it just wasn't supposed to be like that ~ you shut me out. Even though we both agreed at the beginning once we felt something we would end it, It didn't end. You just shut me out and those six months where hell. I cried, missed you, thought I felt like this because I loved you - maybe? Then you let me see you again after 6 months of  mostly silence. But it made me upset! You only wanted sex. I had to readjust my thinking and reassess my feelings. Then your attitude pissed me off. You made me feel like nothing, and even so I couldn't stop seeing you. I finally thought I was over you, somehow I wasn't and the when I thought it was the last time I would see you you decided to be all nice and stuff and made me smile, you where the guy I first met.
 Now I'm on the train again........ FUCK!!!!


(Exert from Ally in Disguise - novel in progress)

They only talk to her because she looks like a total prostitute!

Sex appeal goes along way. Some people exude sex. The connection between how a women looks, dresses and holds herself can form certain ideas in peoples minds about her promiscuity and sexual adventures.
A sexy women should be admired not labeled!

It's time for us to boom boom!

Boom boom boom lets go back to your room, we can talk shit, smoke a joint, lay on your veranda and then we can do it all night, you know you want me to make you feel right......








I can see the smell from here!

Men's aftershave was made for women! Any man that smells that good, can morph into anything you want him to be!
The waft of aftershave from a total stranger strolling past makes my head turn, my eyes close and causes my face to lift as I inhale the scent. For a brief moment I am just me, animalistic, female, wanton sex goddess!
Dreamily my eyes flutter open..... back to reality.

Lovely music!


Hit the road meat brick!

Interesting how dumb some people can be.....
I mean how different we all are, when some people can be happy doing nothing, learning nothing, wanting nothing. What do you do? What do you talk about? Stuck in your own little fortress of nothing! I just can't understand why you wouldn't want to know stuff! I just don't have anything else to say to you except refer to the heading!

I am not your guru!

Who do you look up too? Who makes you want to be a better person? Who's your guru? I look up to so many people and admire so much about other humans, their achievements, their goals and their failures. Everyone who functions in normal society or who is tormented by the stupidity and rantings of 'normal society' but has the sense and audacity to be something different in the somewhat overbearing world. In other words normal and fabulously un normal people have a bit of guru in them. They inspire other people and strive to be a part of this world.....
Maybe I'm not your guru but I'm someones and someone is for me.......

The XX - Shelter

Seconds

Soundvenue Up Close: Lykke Li




Lykke Li is an awesome artist! She has some really great songs. My fav is Little Bit!

Oh My God Becky! Look at her Butt!

What is it with bums? We've all got one. Big, small, huge, tiny, pert and saggy. With hundreds of names like, ass, bum, bubble butt, bottom, rear, tushy, fanny (in some countries.)
How do you know if your bum's a nice one? With so many to choose from,  and of course everyone likes something different. We are basically obsessed with checking out ass! We sit on it ( Its basically a cushion attached to our bodies) we use it to get rid of waste I know disgusting but it has to be said, and yet guys especially can't stop checking them out!
Women spend hours in the gym trying to perfect them and dieting to make it smaller, so other women can envy them and so guys can check it out.
In African American communities the bigger the better. The bubble butt is in.
Pretty strange mating ritual!

It's better that you've apologized, cause now we can start to rebuild!

I can be a pretty stubborn person given the right opportunity ~! or wrong one. I don't mean to be , something just happens and suddenly in an argument or similar such incident I can sometimes but not always be a bit pig headed. (Only if I'm right or I am positive I am right or I might think I'm right. If I am wrong and I know it I am happy to accept it!) After some time I can bring myself to apologize, which is always a  good thing, even if it's still not my fault or I was right and they should be the one apologizing .......
You have to or else you end up holding grudges and life is just too short!!!!!!!

I have an emotional peanut allergy!

Some people just can't function in relationships. They find it extremely hard to be in a relationship with another person, dealing with feelings like love. They find it overwhelming  and they would rather just have brief emotion free moments, more often than not sex to get the closeness and then their gone. They have vast amounts of sexual partners a women or a girl labeled a slut or whore with remarks like~
'Just because you lost your virginity doesn't mean you can go around throwing your cat at everybody'
And guys labeled studs, players and ladies men for doing the same thing.
We all know deep down that these people are scared of getting emotionally attached to anyone so they move around alot! What a lonely life!

Oh Jesus! Your more fucked up than I am!

It's always nice to meet someone that is an instant friend and soul sister. Someone who is as twisted a you are, but in different and equally interesting ways. It doesn't happen very often  but when it does it's like you've been friends forever.

Peep!

Laying awake with my eyes sealed shut.

Bed is a place to sleep, snuggle, lay, rest and dream. I find it quiet disturbing how hard I find it to get to sleep. I love sleep~ when it doesn't elude me and I love sleeping in. Its just getting to sleep that's the problem. I lay awake, eyes shut trying to drift off~ but my damn brain just wont shut off. I can't stop thinking. Random stuff mostly and its rather annoying so I normally try and go to sleep to the sound of the TV~ probably not the best but it works for me.

The White Stripes - 'Seven Nation Army'

TALES FROM ZOMBIETOWN EPISODE (6)

Appletini Recipe

Normal recipe contains vodka and 1 or more of apple juice, apple cider, apple liqueur or apple brandy. Optionally vermouth may be included. a cocktail glass
Typically the apple and vodka is shaken or stirred with a sweet and sour mix and then strained into a cocktail glass.
There are many versions of the Apple Martini, Appletini or Big Apple martini. Some use calvados, some apple puree and some apple schnapps, which can make it sweet.

40ml top shelf vodka (Youi can get a Smirnoff Green Apple Twist vodka as an alternative easy way)
80ml apple juice or apple cider or your choice from above.

Pavement

The cracks are like veins, going this way and that. Some are thick, others are thin. The concrete has split away from itself. This immovable force has become open and exposed. Nothing, not even pavement can last forever, something will always break it, change it, undermine it's strength.
The pavement is like the human body. You can see the cracks slowly appear as we grow, age and ultimately fade into a whole heap of cracks.
