Uruguay's Version of Sangria

It's called Clericot (pronounced Clair-ih-co) my Jet Setter friends...and on the beaches in Punta del Este, Uruguay it is the drink of choice! Bottom line, it's very much like a white wine version of Spanish Sangria.

We were in Punta del Este in March and I asked one of the waiter's at La Huella (a beautiful restaurant right on Jose Ignacio Beach where the Jet Set hang out) for the recipe. (see below) I also bought one of the pitchers they serve it in down there for the equivalent of about $3 U.S. dollars. This is why I say you can still Jet Set in this economy..you just have to Jet Set Smart to the countries where our dollar is still worth something!











RECIPE: CLERICOT - 1 bottle of white wine (dry & not too sweet) - 1 apple diced into small pieces (not peeled) - 1 orange sliced (peeled) - 2 peaches diced into small pieces (peeled) - 1 cup of canned pineapple (if you have fresh, peel and cut into large chunks) - 10 strawberries diced into small pieces - 10 grapes - 3 tablespoons of sugar - Throw all of the fruit into pitcher with the sugar, then add enough wine to cover it. Place in the fridge for 2-4 hours, or until the fruit has absorbed the alcohol. When ready to serve, pour in the rest of the wine and add ice. Buen Provecho! (Enjoy!)
