Sangria - My way (ጠጅ ) Mead Sangria

One of the joys of summer is seeing ample supply of fruits everywhere and in my mind cherries proclaim summer louder than any other fruits. So this year I decided to complement a favor to one of my favorite stone fruit cherry by inviting for tej tasting, which made the guest of honor in this case Mr. cherry happy.


I left the pitted cherries to booze overnight; a bit into those happy pitted and boozed cherries, you would catch the happiness alright. Boy, these happy cherries are good in spreading the joy. I think I could do this all summer. 


So, in my effort to maximize the joy, I made sangria and also baked those happy drunkard cherries. No sugar added to the pie just honey. You can dress up the pie by a simple tej syrup or honey whipped cream. The out come was so summery delish.


Sangria is a beverage originally from Spain and Portugal. Sangria is named after the Spanish and Portuguese word for "blood" because of its typical dark-red color. Actually it’s made with red wine and with fruits. People add sweetener and also a shot of liqueur to give it a kick. But I decided to use one of my favorite flavored tej – Ethiopian style honey mead – (berries and flowers mead) and I am thrilled with the outcome. It went very well with the cherry that it added more pizzazz to the color and also enhanced the nuance.


Happy summer y'all!

I have been happily brewing ever since I have been betten by the brewing bug.

Happier than the classic, “You don't look your age!” compliment.
