Sommer SANGRIA!

I have gotten a few requests from some gorgeous girlfriends of mine for Sangria recipes. Nothing is better than sitting around with a pitcher of sangria to catch up on old times, gossip, and laugh a little too loudly on account of the alcohol. Everyone has their own preferences so I have recipes for Red, White, and Rose!

How to Make Sangria:

  1. Mix the wine, liquer and sugar in the pitcher, stirring to dissolve the sugar, then add the fruit.
  2. Refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to one day.
  3. Add the seltzer just before serving.
