Rose Sangria


The hotter it gets outside the more creative I need to get with my liquid intake.  I don't often have much more than water and coffee in the course of the day. 

If I am feeling fancy I apt up the stakes with some sparking water.   Fancy.

Occasionally wine and beer have entered the picture more often.


Today though I have a special treat. Sangria. Normally reserved for special restaurant orders, I got some for home to get me through the hot nights.  The Sprite makes it somewhat sweet.

Hint: Add frozen berries. It keeps it cool longer and is oh so pretty!

  8. Perfect Friday night cocktail! I love sangria in the summer, but usually just throw whatever local fruit we have in the fridge. I love the idea of frozen berries :)
