Step 1: This Harvest Bellini & Sangria Bar comes together in minutes.  Slice the fruits.  I found mulberries at my farmers market and added them to the mix.  Bellini is a classic peach & sparkling wine concoction, so I used peaches, nectarines & an Italian sparkling rose wine.  Instead of doing all the traditional prep for Bellinis with syrup and peach nectar, I serve some sorbet on the side and let the fresh peaches speak up.

Step 2: Sangria is more open.  I use a combo of fruits like apples & pears w/ some citrus for zing.  I like a mix of red and white wines for a light and fruity punch.  You can even serve sparkling water or wine along side for a sparkling sangria.  Add any herbs you fancy.  I like lemon verbena, lemon balm, mint & pineapple sage. 

Step 3: Set out an array of glasses.  I always add a few small cordial glasses for those that want ‘just a sip!’  I like to add a hefty pinch of cardamom to my sangria.  Its earthy fragrance is a conversation starter.  Left over sangria keeps in the fridge for several weeks.  The fruits only get better.  You didn’t hear it from me, but sangria fruits on a Sunday. brunch oatmeal start the day off mighty fine!

Fun Fact: Celebrate your Hungry Harvest.  Invite your friends and share.  Cook, tipple & dine together.  Every week when your Hungry Harvest arrives, you have chosen to receive a party in every box.  As we all know, it is in giving that we receive.  Let’s raise a toast to the bounty that is ours to enjoy!
