My lovely girlfriends hosted a bridal shower for me over the weekend. As you can imagine a shower with me as guest of honor would definitely not be complete without a sangria station. My friend Amanda put together the most legit and adorable sangria set up I have ever seen.

We of course had a blanca and a roja option complete with the summer hosting must have: mason drinking jars and fun straws.

Hope this inspires you for your next adventure in hosting!

Hi! Happy July! I have been neglecting this cute little tumblr. But had to share some pics from my twitter-friend Danielle. She just shared these pics of a beer-gria she made for friends recently. You can see her post here.

Thanks for sharing Dani!!!

Blood Orange Sangria

Today’s recipe comes from my lifelong friend Elizabeth. Eliz is living the adventurous life in Colorado- more details to come soon on an edition of Sangria is Better w/ Friends

She shared her recipe with me that she made for her ‘book club’ , they do activities — like vodka infusing and bucket-list writing — instead of feeling guilty if they didn’t finish a book.

I am happy to report that a previous post I had done about blood orange San Pellegrino inspired her. Here is her recipe: I mixed Pinot Grigio + San Pellegrino blood orange (per your post!) + frozen fruit (mix w/ pina, mango, strawberries) + big ass mint leaves from the garden. 

Thanks Eliz & salud!

Refreshing Faux Sangria

This is actually not a sangria it has all the fixings of one minus the wine. After a week of sangria & mai tais in Hawaii I owed my body a rest from the hard stuff. We were with our friends in their beautiful SF house enjoying a dinner party pre night time flight home, most were enjoying tequila and wine. I held myself back and worked up a refreshing mocktail that even a few of the other guests requested.

I mixed together pellegrino, limeade, mint leaves, raspberries & strawberries.

Try for yourself!

Today’s post comes via Katie at the Kitchen Door. She calls this drink a spritzer but it has all the goings on of a delicious sangria. Rhubarb is in season now so go scoop some up out of your garden or from your local market and try this one out.

Katie asked that you visit her blog for the recipe. Salud!

Last week we were in Maui with Mike’s & the guys he works with plus their wives & kids. Each day had its fair share of fun & of course a few batches of sangria along the way. Amanda and I were the sangria (and stripe) lovers in the house and our best recipe had to be the one we made our second to last day beach side. See the recipe below:

Freshly sliced pineapple 
Sliced limes
PREPARATION

Sunday offered some dress shopping with my little sister followed by a great family filled afternoon at the farm, sangria sipping, a jamaica jarrito and tons of sunshine! 

My aunt Trish made the sangria with some delicious white wine, pineapple, lime and mangos.

I would love to see your #sangriadiaries snaps!!!
