White Wine Sangria

This recipe comes from Bobby Flay. I've been making it for my sister's annual wine tasting party (which is responsible for the good times of over 60 people) for the past few years. First year, everyone kept asking who made this, who made this? Now, everyone knows. I quadruple the amount to make about 3 gallons for the party and it all goes. This year, my sister even mentioned it in her invitation. Whoah baby, it's famous!!! Just don't ask me how I transport 3 gals from Orlando to Liquordale, I mean Lauderdale.

2 bottles of dry white wine **
3/4 cup brandy
1/2 cup triple sec
3/4 cup simple syrup ( equal amounts sugar and water heated until dissolved)
1 cup peach nectar
A bunch of fruit you like - I use a carton of strawberries, sliced thick like little hearts, lemons and oranges both sliced in rounds, and once I tried cantaloupe which was very good. I also use green apples. The colors look very nice.

Combine all ingredients. Refrigerate, covered, 2 hours or up to 2 days. You can serve over ice.

** For the first couple of years I was buying $8 bottles of wines but this got expensive with the amount I make so this past year I actually bought the big jugs of wine by Carlo Rossi, the name is Rhine white wine. It was a fraction of the price and everyone enjoyed it as much as before. I didn't have a problem taking a risk here because my hubby who has expensive taste in everything else will ONLY drink the Burgundy red wine by Carlo Rossi in the big jug. He loves it.

We finally found a perfect 3 gal tub to fit the wine but this year I may have to get one of these. I found the picture on a fellow blogger's site and loved it. I found out there is one at Sam's Club. How pretty does this look?

I can vouch for the White Wine Sangria - 2 glasses is all you need, but some people are a glutton for punishment and go back for more cause it's so delish. I passed this recipe to some friends, and everyone raved about it so much, it has become a staple at their wine parties too.

Then the operator uses the hydraulic system to lift or bring down cargo and objects. The temporary agency or the contracting employer may conduct the training and evaluation of operators from a temporary agency as required by the standard; however, the host employer (or other employer who enters into a contract with the temporary agency) must provide site-specific information and training on the use of the particular types of trucks and workplace-related topics that are present in the workplace. A good company or service provider in this domain usually handles multiple orders at one time and manages these trucks in bulk. Recycling a scrap forklift requires technical brilliance. While it is a fact that there is a big demand and very valid reasons for going in for forklift hire machines, it is also a fact that it is too important a decision that can be rushed through.
