A close friend of ours got married recently and the bridesmaids were in charge of a small and cosy lunch reception. We planned the menu way in advance and that is when Jia and I jumped at the idea of concocting a light and refreshing alcoholic beverage for the celebration. Now, what is a celebration without some sparkly and fruity bubbly?
This Sangria recipe that we created a few years ago is our absolute favourite. It is sweet and tasty, looks fun and is so easy to put together that we often make the Sangria to share with friends and family or to pack into festive gift hampers for our clients. This white Sangria gets a ton of rave reviews and always hits the right spot!
Sparkly Fruity Bubbly White Sangria
Serves 4 or 2 major Sangria fans
1 bottle of good quality Chardonnay
1 can of ginger ale
2 medium red apples, cored and sliced
8 large strawberries
1/2 lemon, deseeded
1/2 Tahitian lime, deseeded
Place apples, strawberries, lime and lemon into a clean pitcher or bottle.
Pour the bottle of Chardonnay into the pitcher of fruits.
Refrigerate and let the mixture sit for an hour.
After an hour, take out lime and lemon.
Let the rest of the mixture infuse for at least a day in the fridge to release the full fruity flavour.
Add ginger ale and a squeeze of fresh lemon to the Sangria right before serving.
Serve chilled, with or without ice.

The weather in Singapore has been t-e-r-r-i-b-l-e. Yes, just terrible. The intense humidity and warmth is seriously getting to us and all we wish to do is to hide in our rooms with the air conditioner on full blast. Min and I are pretty sensitive to the weather. When it is too hot, bright colours seem too cloying and loud music gives us a headache. Yes, we are old grannies at heart.

We have been so overwhelmed with work since the end of May that we barely have the time to catch up with our friends and family members. With hectic schedules and ticking deadlines, our attempts at maintaining a clean diet has been shot as our meals mainly involves fast takeaways from eateries around us. But hooray, our first free weekend is in sight with a lighter work week ahead! To celebrate, we are hitting the grocery stores to scoop up ingredients from these recipes.
1. What a yummy breakfast idea!
2. Beat the heat with some icy fruity goodness.
3. Hallou, it's mi, your favourite vegetarian burger.
