WALKER BLOOD SANGRIA
1 750 ml bottle of wine, I used Merlot
2 cups pomegranate juice
1/4 cup Cointreau or any orange liqueur (you can also substitute orange juice)
2 cups sparkling water
2 cups ice if desired, you can alway freeze wine cubes ahead of time
1 to 2 cups pomegranate arils
1 to 2 oranges sliced
Remember to allow your Sangria to rest for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight, before serving!
Pour the Merlot in a pitcher, add the pomegranate juice and the Cointreau, stir well.
Put the mixture in the fridge for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight.
Remove the mixture from the fridge and add the sparkling water. Stir well. Add ice if desired.
If serving for a holiday that isn’t Halloween or Walking Dead related I would add some pomegranate arils and sliced oranges for garnish.
Serve with a big old Sangria loving smile!
2 oz. 901 Silver Tequila
1 oz. Lime Juice
1 oz. Orange Juice (Blood Orange)
3/4 oz. Agave Nectar
In a tall rocks glass, pour all ingredients over ice. Shake. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a blood orange slice.
Last season brought the culmination of “All Out War,” which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their leader, Negan. With Negan’s life in his hands, Rick had a character-defining choice in front of him, and he spared Negan to uphold the values his late son, Carl, championed – values that created conflict within his group. Now, with our survivors rebuilding civilization under Rick’s leadership a year and a half after the end of the war, it’s a time of relative peace among the communities. However, the world they knew is rapidly changing, nature is literally taking over, and, as time passes, the communities confront unexpected obstacles and danger. But nothing can prepare them for the formidable force they’re about to encounter, threatening the very idea of civilization our survivors have worked so hard to build.
