June 23, 2014

Welcome to our Blog! We have decided to start this blog as a way to share the knowledge and expertise of all the wonderful people who make L’Andana all that it is!

If you have any questions or topic suggestions, please feel free to send them our way!

This Saturday, June 21st marks the official beginning of Summer! What better way to welcome beach season and backyard barbecues than a cool glass of Sangria! Here at L’Andana we have spent the past few years perfecting our recipe and we are here to share it with you. This recipe is all about the freshness and simplicity, making it the perfect addition to your next pool party or family get-together. The orange and pineapple juices eliminate the need for any additional sweeteners, and using liqueur in lieu of anything stronger is another reason your head will be thanking you in the morning!

When selecting your wine, you want to look for a dry, crisp option, as most of the sweetness will come from the fruit juices. Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc both work great as white options. No need to go too high-end, as you will essentially be changing the flavor of the drink as you add the ingredients. Feel free to switch up the fruit you add. Some of our summer favorites include strawberries, raspberries, and cherries. We always garnish with a touch of mint and voila- the perfect summer cocktail!

Here is the Recipe: (Makes about one gallon)
4 (750ml) bottles of dry, white wine
¼ cup Peach Liqueur
½ cup Orange Liqueur
1 cup fresh squeezed Orange Juice
1 cup Pineapple Juice
1 cup of Soda Water (optional)
Fruit & Mint for Garnish
