Hey everybody! I know it’s been a while since i last posted 😥 …sorry ’bout that! But while i’ve been gone, (from the blogging world anyway) i’ve been trying to drink in as much sun as possible (so that maybe i can finally get that tan!?) and so that led to my spending this past Monday up a my friends lake-house. We had a few doubts about the weather on our way up to the lake (as it was badly storming and we had to drive 30mph under the speed limit just to make it safely there!) But while i was up at the lake i had a great time looking through some cook-books, and picking some super great recipes to try! We made some guacamole (i’ll post the recipe soon!) and then the weather was finally nice enough for us to go out in the kayaks for an hour. It was a blast and i’ve got a lot of recipes coming your way soon!
Ok so about this recipe : I’ve been on the hunt for some fun (Non-Alcoholic) cocktails or um (Mocktails– i guess) recipes for some party’s i’m planing & this sangria recipe is a great fit to what i’ve been looking for! 😉 Hope ya’ll Enjoy it!
