Last week, a few of us girls from Charleston Blogger Society got together at the lovely Annie Reeves home to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and get together for a few hours and chat. As always, it was a lovely time and we got to hear from Jeanne about how to approach various publications about writing for them and it was extremely insightful! If you’re interested in learning more about breaking into publication, I’d love to feature a post just on that one day.
But let’s be real, the real reason you’re reading today is about the sangria I made. Because guys, it’s seriously the best and it only took me 10 minutes to make.
Here’s what you need:
2 bottles white wine (I used pinot grigio)
1 bottle soda water
1 lemon, sliced thinly
1 lime, sliced thinly
Handful of mint
1 cup simple syrup
Go ahead and start making your simple syrup on the stove. To make the syrup all you need is 1 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar. Bring to a boil while continuously stirring until dissolved and set aside. Pour the wine, soda water and syrup into a beverage dispenser. Throw in the citrus and mint and stir. Let this sit overnight. The next morning or before using the sangria, remove the citrus and mint. If you don’t, this will make the sangria go from sweet to bitter and no one wants that!
That’s it! It’s seriously an amazing drink and I had way too much left over after the event. P and I drank it for a couple of days afterwards and it was seriously delicious, even 2 days after making it.
Tell me your thoughts! Sorry for the severely short post today. I’m back to business after the long weekend and have lots to conquer! I’ll have exciting news tomorrow and I’m so eager to share! Have a wonderful day lovelies! xo
