Tasty Tuesday – Red Wine Sangria

Right before we moved out of state, a good friend invited us over for an amazing Spanish-inspired dinner. He loves to cook and outdid himself this night serving tapas with chorizo, Serrano ham, Manchego cheese, olives and a huge pot of Paella.I happened to mention to him that I wasn't a fan of Sangria and he was shocked!

Fiesta Friday

After an emotional week last week I was ready for some much need quality time with one of my BFFs by the end of the week. On Friday night we got together for a little retail therapy. I ended up scoring some great finds at Hobby Lobby and Home Goods. I will be back to share those goodies in another post.After shopping we headed back to my house for drinks and dinner. Jaime was in charge of bringing the drinks and she found a recipe on Pinterest for a cocktail that was similar to sangria. It was de-li-cious and very easy to make.All you need to make this tasty drink is:...more
