I must note that I almost always only drink British Columbia wine. I truly believe that we have some of the best wines in the world. However, today was different. I was on a frugal mission, looking the cheapest wine I could find, that was still good. The man that I spoke to in the store asked me what I meant by cheap and I replied with around $10. He laughed and said, how does $6.99 sound.
I thought he was joking. Don't wines of that price only exist south of the border?
Franciscan California Red Wine (yes, just red wine - no grape varietals found here!), was the wine that I was led too. I was skeptical, to say the least. How good could a $7 bottle of wine really be?
- 1 bottle of Franciscan California red wine (any red will do)
- 1 lemon, cut into slices
- 1 lime, cut into slices
- 1 orange, cut into slices
- 1 apple, cut into slices
- 2 tbsp sugar
- Splash of orange juice
- 2 oz of gin or triple sec (optional)
- 3 cups of sprite or ginger ale
- Seasonal berries, to taste
