Tie One On Tuesday!

Temperatures are heating up and you're heading out to camp or to cool off at the lake! What better way to enjoy the festivities than with some home made Sangria. This recipe is very simple but packs a nice punch (get it, punch...ahh...I've been tasting too much of the Sangria).

Basic Sangria


1 bottle of Dry Red Wine

1/3 of a cup of Brandy

1 TBS of Sugar

Juice of one lime

Juice of one large orange

Juice of one large lemon

Orange slices

Lime slices

1 cup club soda or sweetened soda pop

Combine all ingredients (except the Soda) into a glass pitcher (or plastic if your traveling with it) mixing well. Refrigerate overnight (or until you reach your camp site). Right before you pour the concoction into the glasses mix in the club soda.

When preparing the initial mixture, you can also throw in different seasonal fruit like berries or peaches for an added fruity wine elixir!

This recipe makes about enough to serve 4 or 2 if you are a Sangria hog.

Say that fruity stuff isn't your style. You're a man's man! You once killed a wild animal with your bare hands! You need something stiffer? Well how about some dog piss...you heard me right! Quick side note, I refused to allow OMP to make this in our house cause, well, cause YUCK! So, here are the ingredients, make at your own risk and if you say it's good, we might not be able to be friends anymore....

3 oz vodka
12 oz beer
4 oz Southern Comfort peach liqueur (I really didn't need to know that they made this)

If you start hearing dueling banjos and someone asking you to squeal like a pig, just remember, I warned you.

So there ya go! Two drinks for two different camping adventures. It's up to you to decide what you want your night to look like when you staring at the campfire, wanting a little snuggle action. Cheers!
