Mother Nature’s Joke & The Sunny Gulf Coast.

Temps around here are like a vicious roller coaster. Teasing all of us with a touch of cooler, crisp weather for just a day or two then shooting back up to scorching heat and high humidity.

As you can imagine when the temps drop we get giddy with excitement and start pulling out boots, sweaters, scarfs, hats while simultaneously saying see ya later shorts, sundresses, flip flops and the other summer wardrobe necessities. Read More

You had me at Sangria!!

The Perfect Summer Sangria!!! Sangria

Slice (thin slices) one lemon and one lime

Core and slice 6-8 medium to large strawberries

Place sliced fruit into a clear pitcher

Add 1/2 cup rum (any rum will do!) I used Coconut Malibu

Add one bottle of Sauvignon Blanc (if you know me you know I do NOT like Sauvignon Blanc…. “Sauvignon Blah” is what I call it but it works really well with the fruit and rum.)

Put the pitcher with the fruit, rum and wine in the fridge and let it sit for at least 4 hours. I let mine sit overnight.

Just before serving add about 4 cups of Sprite and Voila!!

I like to serve in a small mason jar or stemless wine glass and garnish with fresh mint

 

Here’s my inspiration recipe from Kitchen Treaty on Pinterest 🙂
