|A special treat at the Biltmore in Montecito!|
For my birthday, John created a meal with Spanish flair!
1/4 Cup Brandy
Make Simple Syrup by filling a 1-cup glass measuring cup with sugar, then filling it with water.
Microwave on high in 30 second increments, stirring, then heating again until sugar is fully dissolved.
Add desired amount of Simple Syrup to wine mixture until it reaches desired sweetness.
We added 1/4 cup. You should be able to taste the tartness of the citrus, and it shouldn’t be overly sweet.
Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
Pour over crushed ice and garnish with quartered orange, lemon, and lime slices.
Paella is a traditional Spanish dish. In researching recipes, we found that it varies by region, and like risotto, or pasta, forms a basis for whatever ingredients you choose to put in it. We chose a combination of Chicken, Smoked Sausage, Clams, and Shrimp.
