Perfect Day by phil_howcroft

Perfect Day

Just a perfect day
Drink Sangria in the park

As Lou Reed once said or sang ...

Well in our case it was the garden rather than the park

Whenever we get a hot sunny weekend day and we are at home, I make a Sangria, for a "Perfect Day". The recipe changes depending upon what we have in

Sangria Jug : Lidl
Gin Glasses : Ikea
Red Wine : Lidl Rioja
Lemonade : Coop
Giant Ice Cubes : Sainsburys
Orange Juice : We didnlt have any so used Lidl Tropical Fruit Juice
Fruit : Lidl Orages, Satsumas, Apples
Mint : Our Herb Garden
Lemon Balm : Our Herb Garden
Slug of Spanish Brandy : Torres 10 - Gran Reserva , Palma International Airport

Tasted nice, as the temp reached 29C in sunny Arnold on Saturday

Aaaah, summer! Can’t beat it!

Very nice

I think this drink must be very good for one! I'd put a few more slugs in there - not the common garden variety though!

Cheers and drink it quickly before I come over and steal it. Looks delicious but too sweet for me. I always prefer red dry wine.

Love sangria. What a beautiful jug!

Sangria! Never actually tried it, but I am loving the design on the jug

I think Lou Reed had something stronger in mind when he wrote Perfect Day.. but as far as I remember he didn't mention it in the lyrics

@casablanca thanks Casa' , Lidl do the jug, every time they have a "Spanish" promotion :) They have some beautiful matching tapas dishes too :)

@quietpurplehaze Haze, see the comment . reply to Casa' , Lidl;s finest :)

@sangwann We drinkt full bodies dry red dione, but Sangria is meant as a summer long drink , it is delicious :)

@maggiemae goos shout re the slugs maggie :)

@777margo thanks margo :)

@allie912 we've had a few summer days this week , now it;s the weekend , it;s dull , grey and rain is forecast !!!

@fbailey Thanks Felicity, I think the slug was probably a little over the top, Torres 10 - Gran Reserva is probably wasted in Sangria !

@kwind cheers :) Salud, Salute , thanks for your visit :)

@phil_howcroft I remember the line well and have the disturbing Velvet Underground vinyl album containing the song Heroin. On Perfect Day he was writing about having a good day with heroin ! Heaven forfend!
