I decided to start taking my own pictures (so I don’t have to worry about anybody trying to sue me over a picture) so I opted to also start enjoying the food for my National Food/Drink Pic of the Day!
I love fries but, I don’t eat a lot of root vegetables… I know bummer right? Not for me. I try and stay away from Sugar, Grains and Root Vegetables… I’m Diabetes free so it seems to be working and I try to keep at it. We eat meat, most veggies, fruit and dairy. My husband and I want to live long so we only try and take a break from our regimen once in awhile.
So in honor of National Julienne Fries Day, I came to Claim Jumper and ordered their Shoestring Fries (that I will only sample because I hate thin crunchy fries), Coconut Shrimp, Salad and since they don’t carry a White Port, for my wine I had to go with a White Melon Moscato Sangria… which is very good… and cheap because it’s Happy Hour from 4-6p Mon-Fri and all day on Sunday.
Oh yeah… here’s my White Port Sangria Recipe
2 cups of White Port
1 cup Patron Citronge Orange Liqueur
1 Mason Jar
Cut Mango in half. Take out the seed and cut one half into cubes and blend other half into a Mango juice, it might be thick but that’s ok, just make sure the mango is ripe and sweet. Then cut oranges into circles.
Pour White Port, Patron, Mango juice and slices from 1 full Orange into a Mason Jar.
Let sit, preferably for a day or two and in Sun preferably or fridge.
When ready to serve… pour White Port Sangria into glasses and garnish with other orange slices (1 or 2 per glass)
Top with a cherry and enjoy!
You can add in white tea bags, grapes, raspberries or other things that suit your taste. If you create your own, share it with me!
By the way… your Non-Port choice would be a Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio.
