This recipe for Sparkling Mango Berry Sangria is a perfect and super-simple way to celebrate summer, or any day for that matter.
Did you know you can make a whole playlist out of Sangria songs? I didn’t until I started writing this post, but sure enough there’s at least 10 Sangria songs on a quick search. But the one my mind always goes back to is “Sangria” by Mr. Blake Shelton. “Your Lips Taste Like Sangria”, just can’t get that song out of my head. Blake Shelton takes a simple melody and hypnotizes you with it.
That’s what this pitcher of Sangria does. It IS no joke. Make a pitcher of this up, and make any normal day into a celebration! I hadn’t really thought about it before, but now that I am, Sangria is really sexy. You definitely need someone to share your thoughts with and before you know it your feeling all sorts of happy! Might just have to look for some Sangria lipstick to go with that Sangria Feeling.
I guess there’s good reason why people have been drinking some version of this for over 2000 years, and yes, I found that on Wikipedia. I like to learn about the history of things. There’s always some interesting tidbits of information to share with people and it gives you a chance to “learn something new everyday”.
Now that the summer of 2016 is coming to a close, and everyone is turning their thoughts to pumpkin (before apple picking season is even here might I add), I want to linger in my summertime a little longer. The days might be getting shorter, but my flowers are still in full bloom; and I want to sit in my backyard with my wine glass and breath in the scents of the roses before they’re gone for the year. There will be plenty of time for fall when it gets here.
This particular rose is called Peace Hybrid Tea Rose, it only produced 2 roses this year. our fence got knocked down by a bad storm last year and it broke the rose bush I didn’t think it would come back at all. Somehow, it did, and just before the end of summer to see it bloom I believe is a gift. This also happens to be the same type of rose that is used in the table settings for my pictures.
When you love to nurture nature (say that three times fast), you get lots of visitors. Like this dragonfly dropping by to show off it’s beauty.
This recipe is easy to make, and a simple way to enjoy the small gifts we have to celebrate on a normal day at the end of one more wonderful summer.Don’t forget to follow along, so you don’t miss out!
