A glass of this citrusy refreshing grapefruit sangria is just what you want to end your outdoor BBQ dinner with. This red sangria recipe is a keeper!
Happy Fri, err Wednesday!
Let me guess, you pulled an all-nighter to finish those taxes last night, didn’t ya? All the forms are signed, stamped and sent? Yay! It doesn’t matter you waited till the last minute, it’s all done now. My friend, you need a glass of wine! Or two! Or three. Have at it, I’m right here with you. No, I didn’t pull an all-nighter this time, but I’ve been there and done that. Oh, joys of sleepless nights over tax forms! NOT fun!
To those who don’t live in the U.S. and didn’t have to go through tax season, you need a drink too. It’s Wednesday after all!
Last month, I’ve been swimming in what it seemed like a grapefruit sea. I mean, deliciously sweet kind of sea, you know. Besides flavoring my cupcakes with them, I threw some in my wine too. Oh, was it good!
To balance out the tartness of a grapefruit, I also added some oranges and sweet orange liquor. So refreshing! Don’t you think it’d be perfect for outdoor BBQ gathering? Effortless, fun and beautiful drink for a crowd. I love the simplicity and versatility of sangria drink.
Simple. delicious and refreshing. Just what you want to sip on during warm summer nights! Enjoy.
Thanks for stopping by.
