One of my favorite summertime inactivities is sipping sangria while sitting by the pool with a book or a magazine. Of course, this isn’t something I do daily, but on a hot Saturday or Sunday afternoon, it sure is relaxing!
I usually make a batch when I have the ladies over for bunco. It is such a hit, I always find myself making a seconds or even a thirds!
If you try my recipe, let me know what you think. If you have your own sangria recipe, please share!
