Welcome to Lost Oak Winery's Blog.
Sangria is a mixed drink from Spain, made using wine and fruit with some other ingredients like ginger ale, soda water, brandy, etc. There are many recipes out there, many of them completely different. We are going to teach you how to make some of our signature drinks from the winery that people always seem to love.
The first recipe is for our sangria. It's a simple recipe, but absolutely delicious. The wine we use for our sangria is our Dolce Rouge. It's a semi-sweet red and it goes well as a base for sangria.
For this class, you will need the following:
- Sagnria & Cocktail Wine Pack
- 1 2 liter of Ginger Ale
- 1 can of lemonade concentrate (or fresh lemonade)
- 1 can of orange juice concentrate (or fresh orange juice)
- 1 can of strawberry concentrate (frozen daquiri mix)
|1 Bottle Dolce Rouge||
1/8 Can of Frozen Lemonade Concentrate
|1 litre Ginger Ale||1/8 Can of Frozen Orange Juice Concentrate
(or 1 cup orange juice)
Sliced Lemons, Limes, & Oranges
1. Thaw the concentrate if using it.
This next recipe is a mix of our Blushing Bride cocktail and this Strawberry Wine Punch from Miss in the Kitchen. This cocktail uses our Rosa Blanca, which is a semi-sweet rosé.
Strawberry Wine Punch
|1 Bottle of Rosa Blanca||1/3 Can Strawberry Concentrate (Daquiri Concentrate)|
|1/3 of a 2 litre of Sprite||2 Cups of sliced strawberries.|
1. Thaw the strawberry concentrate.
So there you have it. These are both extremely simple to make while still delicious and perfect for these warmer spring days. If you wanted to add a little more bite, brandy and triple sec are often used in sangria. So play around with it and figure out what you like best!
During this period of unease, we at Lost Oak Winery are taking every precaution possible to ensure that our guests and employees stay healthy. The safety of our community is of the utmost importance to us. We want to be completely transparent with all of you about what we are doing to prevent the potential spread of coronavirus or any other illness.
So what are we doing to ensure a safe and clean environment? We already keep the bars and tables clean on a regular basis, but we will be making cleaning supplies even more readily available and ensuring that they are cleaned thoroughly after each guest. Typically, we encourage reusing your wine glasses, but for the time being, we will be switching out wine glasses every time you come up to the bar. We will also be continuing to make sure that the wine pourers do not come into contact with the glasses. For large events, we will be using disposable cups only. We understand that some would prefer a wine glass, but at this time, the safety of our employees and all of you is our biggest concern. Bounce houses and other community objects will be on hold for now. If you would like to bring your own outdoor items (balls, hula hoops, etc.), feel free to do so. Just please make sure all items you bring with you go home with you.
So, what can you do to help us prevent illness? First and foremost, please stay home if you are sick. We understand the disappointment of missing out on something fun due to illness. But the health and wellbeing of our most vulnerable is much more important and we ask that you help us by avoiding public places while ill. The next thing you can do to help prevent the spread of any illness is to wash your hands. Studies have found that only 5% of people wash their hands correctly. Take a look at the graphic below for tips on how to wash your hands thoroughly and decrease your risk of illness.
In addition to hand washing, avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose if you have not washed your hands thoroughly. If you need to cough or sneeze, use a tissue (and throw it away immediately) or the crook of your elbow. Avoid clost contact with people who are ill and make sure to thoroughly clean all surfaces at work and home.
If at any point we decide to cancel any events here at Lost Oak Winery out of an abundance of caution, we will post about it on our social media pages and send out emails to all of our mailing list. We are keeping a close eye on the local developments and will continue to do so in the coming months. In the meantime, please be rest assured that we are doing everything we can to keep everyone safe while also keeping things as normal as possible.
