summertime in a glass

I hear the word "summer" and I instantly think "SANGRIA!" 

What's not to love?!



Sparkling little bubbles. 

And it's pretty. 

What's better than fresh fruit & basil?! NOTHING!!

First of all...make yourself some blueberry cubes. Drop some fresh blueberries in an ice cube tray and fill with white grape juice. Freeze. Pop out and store in a freezer bag. (The greatest part about this sangria is you make it by the glassful, not the pitcher.)

Once your cubes are frozen, grab a glass. Drop in a few blueberry cubes. Add a few fresh strawberries (hulled and cut into halves). Throw in a few fresh basil leaves. Seriously, is there any better smell?! Fresh basil. Heavenly. 

Add about 3/4 glass white wine. The best thing about this is you can use the cheap stuff and it still tastes good. 

Top your glass off with sparkling water. Ooohhh bubbles. Pretty. (top it off with some more white grape juice or 7up if you prefer a sweeter sangria). 

That's it. Presto. Magic. A heavenly summer dream in a glass. 

Now, good luck just drinking one glass. You're better off just making a pitcher :)

[you can make this kid/pregnant lady friendly - skip the wine and use sparkling white grape juice instead]
