Sangria is one of the best summer cocktails around-- just ask Mom!  Avis Renshaw, owner of Mom's Apple Pie in Occoquan, Va., shared two of her recipes for sangria with us while we were on our Zip Trip!  Check them out below.


Lost Corner Summer Wine Down

1 bottle 8 Chains North Sauvignon Blanc
1 pint fresh Lost Corner Farm Strawberries
4-6 fresh Basil leaves (depending on size)
3 tsp. Sugar

Lightly chop the basil & then muddle the strawberries, sugar and basil together. Pour the bottle of wine into a pitcher and add the strawberry/basil mixture to the wine. Refrigerate for one hour and enjoy!

If you don't have a mortar & pestle, chop the strawberries & basil together, and then allow them to macerate in the sugar for 1 hour. Try breaking the strawberries up with the back on a spoon to release some juices as well.

You can add more strawberries, basil or sugar to taste. There's no wrong way to enjoy this simple summer drink, make it your own!
