Shopping Around the World

Today is Shopping Around the world with our pal Bacon from PigLove


From Bacon's Blog:

Hello sweet friends.  Did you have a lot of fun with Shopping Around the World last month?  We just have a blast seeing everyone's recipes and pictures.  Since this is the summer and it is so hot here, why don't we focus this month on foods that you prepare in this type of heat.  Whether it's a simple salad, a sandwich with chips, a watermelon salad - what do you fix for dinner when it's just so hot outside to be cooking anything in the kitchen.
Shopping Around the World will be hosted on Monday, July 31, 2017 here in blogville.  Now remember, link back to my blog here so everyone can find your links.  And remember have fun with your recipes.  Can't wait to see your recipes, pictures and prices in your area.  ❤
Oh and you haven't already, please fill free to use my Shopping Around the World with Bacon badge for your blog that my brother Phenny fixed for all of us.  Thanks again brother!

Our recipe today is for Mom's Killer Sangria!

1 Large bottle Red wine (Mom uses Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot)  $7.96/1.5 Liter bottle

1 cup  brandy  $7.95/375 ml

1/2 cup vodka - $9.49/ 745ml bottle

1/2 cup Triple Sec - $8.99/ 1 liter bottle

1 Large Can Pineapple Juice

Simple syrup to taste (equal parts of sugar and water heated until sugar dissolves and cooled)
Slices of peaches, oranges, and apples (Mom likes to marinate them in the brandy.

Pour over ice and enjoy but remember....it's not called KILLER for nothing!!!  You don't want to turn into a Hooligan like these kitties.....

Mom says that mix sounds so tasty, but she might only be able to tolerate a tiny sip:)

We are hoping for some good healing for Daddy Bill - we heard that he is in ICU with pneumonia. His doctors are under orders from us to make him well again SOON.

Hugs and Woos - Lightning and Misty

That would make us forget the heat- and our name too :)
I am praying for Bill and also for you. XO

Carol WY said...

This sounds great. We wish we had a glass right now. The fruit soaked in brandy sounds good on it's own as dessert.

Mary McNeil said...

Prayers for Bill, and for you and the Fur Kids.

Timmy Tomcat said...

Dad says this has a bit of a kick for him but maybe he will whip some up for his house warming.
Sending purrs and prayers for Bill. Love and support for you all

OMC...Killer is right. Mom says she wouldn't go near that stuff if you paid her a million dollars. The photo is so super funny. Those kitties are definitely hooligans. Sending more and more prayers and love to Dad Bill, Mom Sharon, Allie and Raz, and Mau sends oodles of smooches and love for Allie.
