Summer …

A man not old, but mellow, like good wine.

Stephen Phillips, (1845-1915)

Rumour has it that the Antipodeans are striving to retain our Summer, but I have news for them. We took the Ashes, now we will take back our Summer!
So there, cobber!
Until the inevitable happens, of course. We will eventually have to give back the Summer, and will probably hand back the Ashes as well.
That, after all, is the way we do things!
But, until then, I shall encourage all you 'northern hemisphere' types to indulge yourselves with copious quantities of my fiendish Sangria recipe, the one I posted last year. I am happy to re-post this one for a couple of reasons. Last year I received a lot of drunken feedback from the more adventurous types who tried it. I am also proud of the fact that if you follow my instructions about 'cheap' you will indeed enjoy it even more!
Here it is in video format this time.

I have one confession to make. Please read 'ml' for wherever I've inserted 'mil'. In other words, where I suggest you use 500mil of red wine I actually mean 500ml (half a litre). A mistake I only spotted after editing the whole video, and something I didn't have the heart to rip the video apart to correct.
If you have a problem reading the captions in IE8, right-click and select 'Full Screen', and that should sort you out. I promise to do better in future! (all fixed ...)
Enjoy ...
