Tapas Sangria Pancakes
"Our last night together in Barcelona, Esther and I went out for dinner. We ordered tapas and giggled every time she said 'sangrita,' even though she already knew it was called 'sangria' ...

How to make the syrup:
Add all ingredients to a large saucepan and bring to a boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until liquid is reduced until about 1/3 of the original amount and thick and syrupy. About 15 minutes. Let cool and then strain.
"My coffee maker had its own alarm clock, clicking itself awake fifteen minutes before me, and three hours before first period. Moving, but still not awake exactly, I'd walk across my studio apartment, the smell of coffee wafting around me, and pour myself the first of two cups." (How We Fight for Our Lives p. 147).
Directions: Shake all ingredients with ice until chilled and serve.
