Perfect Summer Sangria

Over the past weekend the weather has been very, very hot. So what better to do then lay by the pool, soak up some rays, and drink sangria? Sounds like a perfect summer day to me! Don’t forget, it is always very important to wear sunscreen, especially when the sun is so strong in the summer time! I wear sunscreen every day, but when I’m laying out by the pool I make sure to use a higher SPF (at least 30) and reapply it a couple times throughout the day. Nothing is worse than a sensitive, red, itchy burn! And unlike some people, when I burn, I peel. So now it’s time for the perfect summer sangria recipe! Personally, I prefer red wine over white wine, but you can adjust the recipe to your likings! So, first, you need a 1 bottle of either white or red wine – pour the whole bottle into the pitcher. Next you will need to add 1 cup of champagne, a cup and 1/2 of orange juice, 1 cup of club soda, 1 and 1/2 shots of Grand Marnier, and finally 1/4 cup of sugar! Then after you have added all of that to the pitcher, it’s time to add some fresh fruit! You can put any type of fruit you want into your sangria, I like to put apples, oranges, lemons, strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries! After you are done mixing your fruit into the pitcher, don’t forget to add some ice to make it nice and cool! Now comes the fun part! Go outside in your bathing suit, lay on a lounge chair, put some sunscreen on, and enjoy the warm summer sun!
