Easy, Delicious Summer Sangria

Each year I find improvements to make my Sangria easier to make and more delicious. So far, this is the best of both. And it all changed once I started using Riunite’s Lambrusco sparkling red wine and Simply Limeade.

  • 1 1.5 L Bottle of Riunite Lambrusco Sparkling Red Wine
  • 1 Cup Bourbon or Brandy
  • 2 Navel Oranges
  • 2 Apples
  • 4 Limes
  • 1 Bottle Simply Limeade

Update: here is a quicker, possibly more delicious recipe 😉 https://davidwesterfield.net/2019/06/easy-delicious-summer-sangria/

—————————————————————————–

This is a recipe I’ve modified from my original based on a trip to Cabo a few summers ago and I’m finally putting it to print. We learned from a waiter at Pueblo Bonito Rose how they made their Sangria so awesome. Turns out, this is even better than my original Sangria recipe.

Testimony of Catherine Westerfield

Testimony of my mother Catherine Westerfield, March 7, 1950 – June 28, 2001

I can remember my conversion at the age of five so very well. It was a Sunday evening worship service. It’s remarkable, as I look back at how God revealed Himself so clearly – His infinite love for me. I was both in a state of bliss and crying at the same time. He revealed how He chose me, yes me, to be His own from all eternity; always in His love – I would never be without Him. I believed in His death on the cross for me personally, Catherine, and His resurrection and ascension into Heaven to be with His Father. I came to these revelations by the intense drawing of the Holy Spirit. He knew the difficulties that lay ahead in my life. Through all of the abuse and mental problems I never doubted my security of salvation or His infinite love for me. I did question, but never doubted that this was His eternal plan for me.

I won’t go into all the pain and problems I’ve had. God says He will give us trials. They came one right after another except for the period of time when I was first married in 1977 until December of 1983.

But we do not look at our trials as do unbelievers. We do not depend on status among our peers, acquiring possessions or position in life as a way of escaping our true need to simply lean on Christ’s breast and know He is refining us.
