Happy Friday! I hope everyone had an enjoyable 4th of July.
Ed and I had a quiet day just hanging out by our pool enjoying the sunshine and steaks on the grill. We have been traveling a lot and it was nice to just be at home.
We also enjoyed some festive drinks, Ed is a Margarita kind of guy in the summer, I like Sangria, cut with club soda and ice. I was going to make up my friend Jaye’s BEST EVER recipe for it, but since I was going to be the only one drinking it, I did the next best thing – I poured the most delish store bought Sangria EVER!
I have noticed that there have been a lot of web sites and blogs lately that claim to have the best Sangria EVER! I have to smile, since I know I have the best recipe ever and not only that – the easiest one to make, too!
My sister brought a few bottles of this Madria Sangria to a party at my house a few years ago. It was a hit and is now a summer staple.
Poured in a pitcher with slices of fruit added make it appear like you whipped it up yourself. It sure tastes like you did.
This is not a sponsored post, just something I enjoy and wanted to share with you. One of those tips that helps make life a little bit easier while not compromising style and in this case taste.
If you would like to make Sangria from scratch, here is the recipe I love.
I asked my friend for the recipe after she made it for a party many years ago. It is simple to make, but be prepared mid-party to whip up more – as it seems to be a crowd pleaser.
