Today’s infographic, since it’s my son Porter’s 12th birthday, is Porter vs. Stout, showing the modern differences between the various types of beer called porter or stout. Historically, it’s well-settled that they were essentially the same beer, but have diverged in recent decades. The poster was created by Ethan John, of Geek Beer, who used BJCP descriptions and info from Ray Daniel’s book Designing Great Beers.

My Mother The Spaniard’s Sangria Recipe
Posted Thursday, May 13, 2010 at 9:27.
Tagged: Alcohol.Sangria.Spain.Rioja.Wine.

A pitcher or a punchbowl
1 bottle (750 mL) of Rioja wine
1 Tbsp. cinnamon sugar
75 mL Martini & Rossi Dry vermouth
1 L Diet Sprite or Sprite Zero*
1 orange
1 lemon OR 1 lime
1 peach (preferable)
1 banana (optional)

First, cut the fruit into pieces. My mother recommends cutting it into wedges, and then cutting those wedges in half. Put that shit in your pitcher/punchbowl. Add the cinnamon sugar. Add the Sprite (slowly or it will fizz). Add the Wine. Stir that shit. It’s okay to add ice if you like.

*If we were in Spain, my mother would use “Gaseosa” (a flavorless, lightly sweetened fizzy drink) and lemon juice. Here, she substitutes Sprite. She cautions you not to use regular Sprite, otherwise your Sangria will be too sweet.
