did anyone try the champagne cocktail from last happy hour? me neither, too busy scraping wallpaper and sanding woodwork. the summer is young though and there's plenty of time. here's a strawberry basil sangria i plan to enjoy while spending an hour virtually window shopping. here's the recipe and the finds.
1/2 lb. fresh strawberries, 1 apple, 1 oz. fresh whole basil leaves, 1 bottle chardonnay, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup club soda, 1 cup white grape juice.
trim and thinly slice strawberries and slice and dice apple into very small bits. rub the basil leaves gently with a fork to release their flavor. layer the fruit, sugar and basil in a large pitcher and let sit for about 10 minutes. add the club soda first and then the remaining liquids. stir well and serve.
