Good till the last drop

In lieu of your traditional margarita, we thought we would take a different route. Yep, it’s not Mexican, but still has an international flair, and just the kick we were looking for to start out our Cinco de Mayo celebration.

This sangria is a quick and easy way to impress your guests and a very refreshing drink for those sticky summer nights.

To throw this drink together all you need is a pitcher, Rioja (a Spanish red wine), Grand Marnier, simple syrup and fresh fruit.

Gather your ingredients and pour one bottle of your wine into a glass pitcher—the drink is so pretty you’ll want show it off—then, top it with ½ a cup of Grand Marnier. Next, add your simple syrup. To make this, just dissolve ½ cup of sugar in ¼ cup of water on the stove top. For the finishing touch, thinly slice lemons, apples and oranges, and add them to your pitcher. Stir it all up and you’ve got a great start to your night out.

Until next time,

xoxo,
