DOTW: Star Spangled Sangria

Heyyyy, it’s Independence Day! It sure won’t be like any other! Record numbers of Covid-19 are raging all over the country, and although I live in NYC, and we definitely seem to have the numbers under control, we are still not taking any chances. Nobody that I know of is having any big parties, the beaches are not exactly empty, but people are definitely social distancing. The Macy’s fireworks are still happening, however, the majority of us are watching it live on NBC tonight, not wanting to risk our great progress. But we will drink, don’t get it twisted. I mean, we don’t have to drive home, we’re already there! Here’s a sweet little cocktail you can sip on all day (and/or night) without getting too tipsy. It’s light, refreshing and delicious.

What you’ll need:

In a glass filled with ice, add the Prosecco, then top off with lemonade and sparkling water. Add lemon, strawberry, and mint. This drink is easily made in advance in larger quantities, just multiply the ingredients. You can also drink this without ice, it’s yummy either way.

Cheers, and have a safe 4th Of July!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
