30 Days of Beverages – Day 11 – A little lemon, a little lime, a little WINE!

Uncategorized | August 12, 2009 | By

Yesterday afternoon I got a call from my friend, Staci. Her 3 kids are all home with her this week and making her a bit nuts…I think we could all relate to that one! She made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. I’d meet her at the swimming pool with my drink in tow and she’d bring dinner to the pool for the whole gang – herself and her 3 kiddos as well as for me and the weeone! How can a mom who hasn’t planned for dinner turn that one down!
With this in mind I started thinking about what would be a great cocktail poolside as well as what could I travel with pretty easily and survive? SANGRIA!!!
Now, I completely cheated and did NOT make this sangria from scratch, although I’ve been known to – in fact I make a pretty killer white wine sangria that I might share with you later in the month if you’re really, really lucky! I had some sangria mini wine cubes on hand from Target. If your Target sells booze, you’re in luck! If you mix it with a little Diet Sprite or Gingerale and add some fresh fruit you’re in business….
This is a tasty summer cocktail that is completely at home hanging out on a diving board by the pool! But be careful…don’t drink and dive. =)

    Please post your white wine Sangria – so much better than red, IMHO!
