Free range beer is always found in a bottle, the way nature intended it to be.
This is good stuff and it isn't even alcoholic. Try substituting
where ever beer , carbonated water, or Ginger ale is recommended
3/4 cup of fresh ginger preferably from the west Indies.
6 cups of boiling water. (tap is fine but how about having them
perkier blues or nursery water)
the juice of two limes ( don't skimp get some real key limes)

other jar that can be sealed and stir it all up until it is all

Add this juice to the wine and stir it up. Pour in to cooler or
suitable container already full of ice.
pour in the carbonated water and stir slowly. Garnish with
chunks of fruit. Keep a lid on it to keep out the flies and keep
in the carbonation.
BTW a real sangaree combines wine, brandy and water. Try
substituting a schnapps or brandy for the juice for a cooler with
Pretty basic stuff but its classier than Bartles and Jaymes and
you can make your own flavors like strawberry banana, watermelon
lime and so on.
