Okay…it’s that time of year when we head to the beach for picnics, fun and games. One of my favorite things to do is pack our food and drinks in Mason jars. They are easy to carry, never spill what’s inside and come in many sizes.
Rebecca’s Spicy Sangria
This is a portable drink for picnics. We love to take it to the beach, on camping trips or tailgating. The non-alcoholic tastes just as good for the kids. You can make these in pint jars also. It is a beautiful drink…serve with straws and don’t forget to eat the fruit.
Granny Smith apples, sliced
Peaches or Nectarines, sliced
Blueberries and Raspberries
Ancho Chile Pepper (adjust to taste)
Raspberry Apple Clear American Sparkling Water
Cranberry Apple Juice
White Wine (optional)
Quart Mason Jars
In clean Mason jars, layer the fruit in order of above ingredients. I fill the jars about 3/4 full with fruit. Pour Sparkling water, cranberry/apple juice and white wine about 33/33/33 to cover fruit. I go to the ring. Add just a dash of Ancho Chile Pepper, if desired. Seal with the lids and rings and place in refrigerator overnight. Shake a little before serving.
