|The Wonderful Sangria|
1 bottle of chilled dry white wine [best that you like]
1 bottle chilled champagne [modest but a good one is best]
3 oz. Damiana liqueur [herbal liqueur with citrus and vanilla flavors]
2 freshly sliced pears
2 freshly sliced and cored apples [good crunch to the apple is best]
20 whole cloves
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
In a large festive pitcher, add the pears, apples, cloves and the nutmeg. Then Add the Damiana liqueur and stir well. Add the wine and stir everything gently very well. Refrigerate overnight.
When you are ready to serve, pour in your champagne, stirring it very slowly within the cold mixture. Serve in an ice-filled wine glass.
Well I hope that you all enjoy the holidays
