The other night I got in the mood for sangria… It was a peaceful, lazy, summer night and it just felt right. Hubs was frying squash fresh from the garden and i decided to whip up a batch of sangria for us. I searched around on Pinterest and mix and matched a few recipes that sounded good. I used what we had (because I was just too lazy to go to the store this particular night) and it turned out yummy!
I even tried it 3 nights later and it still tasted fabulous! I'm planning on making it again very soon.
