Basque Lemonade

""What would summer be without lemonade? Actually, this can be considered more of a wine cooler and is definitely the kind of lemonade not to serve to children. With a massive heat wave being felt around the world, including Spain’s Basque region, it is most likely that the 'ardaurgozatza' is flowing daily." Neither soak nor chill time is included. Taken from hispanickitchen. com and posted for ZWT."

    This is a great little quick-fix sangria! I made a single serving (ok a couple of them) by squeezing a quarter of a lemon, then adding the appropriate amounts of water, white and red wines. Enjoyed this - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!

    This is a good sangria, though the lemon is subtle. I wasn't totally sure of the intention of the instructions, so I peeled the lemon for the soaking and then sliced the remaining lemon for the chilling part (and then let it sit for 4 hours, so it would have some time to be infused with the flavor). I removed the rinds after the 24 hours so it wouldn't become too bitter. For more of a lemonade feel, I think adding some lemon juice and more sugar would be a great addition to this drink.

    I wouldn't have thought to mix red and white wines, but this is really good with the lemon - tastes more like sangria than a wine cooler. Great idea!


Someone special recently gifted me with membership ~ I don't know who, but know they are special :D! Thank you! It is much appreciated.... My parents owned a grocery store when I was growing up, so there's my love of FOOD! My friends all love to drink, so there's my profession! I stopped bartending 5 years ago, when my son was born, but still 'do' private parties. DH and I did a 'Supper Club' for a while, but life kept getting in the way! I am a SAHM, to a rambunctious 5 y.o....I LOVE cooking and collect cookbooks and anything kitchen related! I'm kinda picky, but will just drop an ingredient or make a sub, so I can still try a recipe. I'm looking forward to many years of enjoyment here, and hope to participate in some events soon! Thanks to everyone for posting such great recipes, and if you review mine, just know that I appreciate the time and effort involved in the reviewing process! <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <a href=""><img src=""></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> Partnered with chef#724631 <img src="" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> Co-hosted: <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="New Kids Participation Banner"> <img src=""> <img src =""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="BBBZWT%"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" > <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src= "">
