White Peach Sangria

Summer is around the corner and I relish in my favorite warm weather cocktail - S A N G R I A! White, red, doesn't matter. I enjoy experimenting with different flavored wines and fruit combos. Sharing my recipe for White Peach Sangria. There is not a standard wine for Sangria. However, for a white Sangria, pick a zesty, aromatic wine. I used this Riesling for this particular recipe......more

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!

Need I say more. What makes Spain’s Sangria so deliciously unique is…..the full body and character of the wines made in Spain. Sangria can taste like watery soup if made incorrectly....more

Spiced Red Sangria

 I woke up this morning finally ready to hit the ground blogging again… as many of my followers continue to remind me that I haven’t posted so frequently lately.  I wanted to share a recipe for homemade pop tarts – healthier with less sugar – but I can’t find my rolling pin anywhere!   A victim of our move to Los Angeles, I believe, but problematic in this instance nonetheless.  So instead, I’d like to toast to 2013 by offering up a great recipe for red sangria....more
