Celebrating with Strawberry Sangria
Two of M's high school friends are getting married this weekend (to each other), and I feel like starting the celebration early. What a better way to spend an evening than dancing away because two people are in love? It's a contagious, pervasive feeling, and I thought it was worth sharing with you, too.
This strawberry sangria is the perfect way to get the party started. It's the color of love, with abundant, ripe strawberries mulling in a sweet bath of deep red wine and liqueur. I hope it jump starts your weekend celebration, whether you're celebrating love or simply life itself!
1 bottle red wine
1 cup lemonade
3 T. triple sec
2 T. brandy
2 T. powdered sugar
1 cup sliced ripe strawberries
Directions: Combine all of the above ingredients in a large jug or bowl. Stir well to incorporate sugar and refrigerate overnight so that the strawberries can infuse flavor. The longer it sits, the better it tastes! Then serve.
