See-Through Sangria

 

Having a group of women who you can share life with is crucial! Every mom needs a mommy support system! We had friends over one night and I decided that we needed a little relaxer. I decided on See-Through Sangria. I found the recipe in this book that Foodmomiac gave to Lover Boy and I our first Christmas down South in Georgia!

Here’s how I made it:

1 1/2c halved green grapes, 1 1/2c sliced strawberries, 1 sliced unpeeled lemon, 1 sliced unpeeled lime, 1 sliced unpeeled small orange
In a large glass pitcher add 1 bottle of wine and 1/2c sugar (that’s my pretty sister in the background!)
Add all of the fruit and 2c club soda (I have no idea what I was doing, obviously not focusing my camera though! – and that’s me)
Next add in 1/2c Orange Liqueur
Let it soak overnight (or all afternoon like me)
Fruity goodness

I am not a drinker, in fact I actually do not even like alcohol, but this was sooo good! LaToya and I kept close tabs on how much our hubby’s had because this drink was OURS!!

It was a perfect blend of fruit and light wine. So good!

    The sangria made the prefect drink on a hot night. It had a light crisp taste and is great for entertaining.
