Some of our peers might be out braving Sydney winter, traffic and club crowds, but no, not us. Other than the fact that we’re both lightweights (i.e. fall asleep basically by looking at alcohol), we thought it best to batten down the hatches and get some work done. After a number of hours discussing inventory tracking and processing countless invoices, I lost it. We were both pretty exhausted at this point, but I also realised that I’d under-ordered napkins for our Candy Coloured Party Kit and proceeded to get very angry, with myself.

Read - 'Celebrating: Any excuse will do'

In typical Khai fashion, he diffused ‘angry Lel’ by saying or doing something silly then suggested we have a glass of wine. So we did. After getting a bit grossed out by the wine after a while, we magically morphed it into our famous Sangria:

The Kit Source Sangria

In a 2L jug, mix the following:

  • 1 x bottle of red wine – we like a blend, something like McGuigan’s Black Label is good (and not too expensive)
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1 whole orange, sliced, peel and all
  • 1 whole lemon, sliced, peel and all

Swirl the mix around to dissolve the sugar, and then place in the fridge for a couple of hours to infuse. We’ve left it for >24 hours and it’s still good.

When you’re ready to serve, pour half to one bottle of dry ginger ale into the jug. Do this to taste… as mentioned; Khai and I are lightweights, so tend to add the whole bottle. 

Serve in glasses filled with ice and extra seasonal fruit, if you like.

So, with a glass of Sangria in your hand, Saturday nights can be very productive. We weren't as productive as we should have been, but at least we got some of that boring accounting stuff done!

Next week is going to be another mammoth week. I've found it harder than anticipated to juggle paying work and The Kit Source work, let alone find time to exercise and catch up on Suits episodes. I guess there'll be time for that later on.
