I have always loved making fun and new drinks both for entertaining and just for the mister and I. It’s such a fun conversation starter at parties or the perfect way to kick off the weekend. I thought it might be fun to share a drink recipe with you every Thursday for a weekend jumping off point.
We had some friends over last week who we hadn’t seen since their wedding earlier this summer and thought this Red Sangria was the perfect pre-dinner drink!
