Sangria Update

Last night, my friend Emily and I decided to make a THIRD type of sangria (Yes. I am a sangria fanatic). I used a white rioja along with some fresh squeezed OJ, apricot slices and raspberries. It was refreshing, fruity, and quite delicious. If you’re interested in a recipe for a traditional red wine sangria or a Sangria Blanca, look a couple of posts down.
