Hey y’all…we hope you’re doing well. We had a wonderful weekend and this week we’ve kicked it into high gear as the warmer weather is allowing us to do more projects. Jennifer and I fluffed our booth at Treasure Hunt on Saturday. I’m currently working on updating my upstairs landing and making over my master bedroom. You’ll see more of that in the next couple of weeks 🙂
Sunday was spent together for Easter. It was one of those serendipitous days – our weather was perfect, we sat outside on the deck catching up with each other reminiscing and laughing. It was just an easy, breezy day – I love when that happens. We are all so busy in our everyday lives it was joyous to have some downtime – even for just a day.
As the weather warms up we begin thinking of eating outdoors, entertaining friends and going to the lake. One of our go-to Special Bevs (cocktails) is Sparkling Wine Sangria. This sangria is refreshing, citrusy and not too sweet. You prepare it in a pitcher, which makes it very convenient for serving guests.
We enjoyed drinking sangria on Sunday and thought y’all would like the recipe too 🙂 Our recipe is a variation from one of our all-time favorite Spanish restaurants in Florida – Columbia Restaurant.
Here’s what you need:
Pour all of the liquid ingredients into a large pitcher…
The most difficult part of this recipe is remembering to make the simple syrup ahead of time. You can buy simple syrup in the store but it is a bit expensive and so much easier and cheaper to make at home. Be sure to use sparingly to control the sweetness. We don’t like it very sweet so we only use about a tablespoonful for the entire pitcher.
What is your Spring/Summer cocktail of choice? We would love to hear 🙂 Cheers Y’all!
