Home is Where the Pizza is...

"When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's amore."

We had a "make your own pizza night" over here a couple weeks ago.  I think we had every topping possible, including fresh mozzarella, pesto, homemade sauce, sausage, mushrooms, broccoli, peppers, goat cheese, and more.  We all filled our bellies with our individual pizzas and sipped on some sangria I made.  

 Unfortunately, this was the only (horrible) picture I took of the sangria, but I can assure you, it tasted much better than this picture looks!  

1/2 cup of Brandy
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup frozen lemonade concentrate
1/3 cup orange juice
1 bottle red wine
1/2 cup triple sec
1 lemon, sliced into rounds
1 orange, sliced into rounds
1 lime, sliced into rounds
1/4 cup sugar
8 maraschino cherries 

1.  In large pitcher, mix together brandy, lemon juice, lemonade concentrate, OJ, red wine, triple sec and sugar.  
2.  Float slices of lemon, orange, and lime.  Add maraschino cherries.
3.  Refrigerate over night.  
4.  For fizzy sangria, add club soda before serving.

(I doubled this recipe and it made a little less than two large pitchers)

And who can decline dessert after pizza?  I made some Peanut Butter Cup Muffins to indulge in afterwards.
