Simplifying Delicious: Summer-y Sangrias
Hello Fabulistas! Spring (and summer) are in the air, and that means it's time to put away the winter drinks! When the weather is this nice and the breeze is warm I like to sip on something cool and refreshing. There's nothing like a nice, cool sangria to get me in the summer-y mood. Do you feel the same way? Here are my favorite seasonal sangria recipes: Thai Basil Sangria Sangrias are typically made with red wine, which can get a little hot. This Thai Basil Sangria is made with a refreshing white wine, which also gives the drink its light color. The citrus-basil mixture is what puts this drink over the top and makes you feel like you're far, far away!
from Appetite for ChinaCitrus Sangria Mmm, I LOVE mint! This citrus sangria is garnished with mint which is the first thing you smell when taking a sip. What you smell sets the perfect tone for what you're about to taste, don't you think?
from Your Southern PeachPineapple, Strawberry & Mint Sangria Yes, I can't get enough mint! When you pick up a bunch of mint, there's usually enough to try out a few different recipes. This is so delicious because, although it's minty fresh, the pineapple and strawberries add a nice, fruity touch!
from My Life As A Mrs.Limoncello Sangria Have you ever tried making sangria with Limoncello?! I haven't and I'm super excited to test this out! Limoncello is a favorite of mine. It's strong and flavorful. The mixed fruit will sweeten it up and make it the perfect spring drink!
from RomettiWatermelon Sangria I'm so happy that watermelons are back in season! They are one of my favorite fruits, with just the right amount of sweetness. Of course making sangria from watermelons would be the natural next step, right?!
from Serious EatsDo you live sipping on sangria during warm weather, too? Which of these recipes are you most excited to try first?
