This past weekend, I headed to the Dave Matthews Band concert and hung out with some friends. We have been planning on going to the concert for months and it ended our month of wedding craziness and traveling. The past month has been such a whirlwind that it really felt like the first time we could just sit back and relax.
Normally, I would have spent some time trying to figure out exactly what I wanted to bring to the tailgate, but this time it was a really last minute decision. I decided to make a Peach Sangria that was light, cooling and refreshing. And that is exactly what it turned out being.
|1 Tablespoon Minced Ginger||1 750mL Bottle Pinot Grigio|
|1 Cup Peach Liquer||1 750mL Bottle Prosecco|
|Frozen Peaches and Frozen Strawberries|
1. Mull the minced ginger and add in the pinot grigio and the peach liquor. Then add the frozen fruit and refrigerate until ready to serve.
2. Prior to serving, top it off with the prosecco.
I used Barefoot Pinot Grigio and Cupcake Prosecco. The drink turned out to be the perfect balance of sweet and refreshing. I am not a big fan of sweet drinks.
Instead of making a pitcher of the sangria, I decided to fill up 10 mason jars, and a separate pitcher. I felt like a single pitcher wouldn’t last very long and everyone would be lucky to even get one drink. The mason jars worked out PERFECTLY. Everyone got their fill of the sangria and the mason jars acted as a great glass to drink from.
Just for the fun of it, I put cupcake liners on the top of the jars and stuck the straws in there. Pinterest has such wonderful ideas! Got to love it!
Who’s ready to BBQ?!
What are you most looking forward to this summer?
It’s definitely being outside and enjoying the nice weather. You really can’t beat it.
