30 Days of Beverages - Day 11 - A little lemon, a little lime, a little WINE!

Yesterday afternoon I got a call from my friend, Staci. Her 3 kids are all home with her this week and making her a bit nuts...I think we could all relate to that one! She made me an offer I couldn't refuse. I'd meet her at the swimming pool with my drink in tow and she'd bring dinner to the pool for the whole gang - herself and her 3 kiddos as well as for me and the weeone! How can a mom who hasn't planned for dinner turn that one down!

With this in mind I started thinking about what would be a great cocktail poolside as well as what could I travel with pretty easily and survive? SANGRIA!!!

Now, I completely cheated and did NOT make this sangria from scratch, although I've been known to - in fact I make a pretty killer white wine sangria that I might share with you later in the month if you're really, really lucky! I had some sangria mini wine cubes on hand from Target. If your Target sells booze, you're in luck! If you mix it with a little Diet Sprite or Gingerale and add some fresh fruit you're in business....

This is a tasty summer cocktail that is completely at home hanging out on a diving board by the pool! But be careful...don't drink and dive. =)

Please post your white wine Sangria - so much better than red, IMHO!
