Perfect Summer Sangria

Pin It PIN IT!

Did everyone have a fantastic 4th of July? Despite a few rain showers (which prevented me from tanning myself at the beach), ours was pretty good here in ol’ Chucktown. I ate far too much, as always. We go to this potluck every year and I load my plate up with the most random bits of grub. But it’s all deep southern classics, like mac n’ cheese, pulled pork and fried chicken, who I am to say no to that? Plus, it’s a holiday. Calories don’t count right? And today is Friday so they don’t count either which is why I’m going to drink 14 glasses of this perfect summer sangria.

Mixed berry and rose sangria

Look at all of that fruit? It makes me want to dance. The funny thing about this sangria is that I made it, like, a month ago while we were living at the old house (weep, weep!) for work and then realized I never actually shared it on here. Other food bloggers, does this ever happen to you? I actually only stumbled upon it because I was searching for an older photo for work and WAHLAA! Here sat this beautiful sangria just begging to be shared.

Perfect summer sangria

And what better time to enjoy a nice cool glass of sangria than on a STUPID hot day like today. I love the south with all of my little heart but HOT DAMN the summers are brutal down here. Which is why I’m going to plant myself down on an inflatable pool bed with a big mason jar of this and call it a day.

simple summer sangria

That’s if the weather holds out. If someone is knowledgable on Indian keep rain away dances, please do share the technique with me. The level of pale I’m reaching is becoming a national hazard.

    Hello, Neat post. There's a problem together with your web site in internet explorer, would check this?

    due to this problem.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter
    to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

    If you see him out on the town with his new girl, they
    probably seem blissfully happy. Solo Sex Cams is one of the best live sex cam
    website you can find. Do not let them know where you live and be

    So in this article I'm going to offer you several thoughts about, then reasons and strategies for making offers on your webinars.
    Focus on doing one of the above steps better every day and before
    you know it, you will be getting huge amount of visitors to your site from these sites
    each and every day. Facebook Fans pages are
    awesome for gaining exposure for your business and getting
    people to know your brand, run offers, make some sales
    and establish your desired perception among the people that like your products
    and services.

    His writings reveal his deep-seated interested in mysticism, astrology, out-of-body experiences and close encounters with
    God. Aromas like musk from natural ingredients are extremely
    complex and have been impossible to imitate through synthetic aromatics like nitro-musks or macrocyclic musks.

    Sometimes the different water alcohol base level
    in cologne makes it easier for an individual to tolerate the aroma.

    An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto a colleague who was conducting a little research on this.
    And he actually ordered me breakfast due to the fact
    that I discovered it for him... lol. So let me reword this....
    Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for
    spending the time to discuss this subject here on your blog.

    I do not know if it's just me or if everyone else encountering problems with your website.
    It seems like some of the text on your posts are running
    off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?

    This might be a problem with my browser because I've had this happen previously.

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your website.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues?
    A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?

    You wont find Adiphene in your native pharmacy or some huge store like Walmart or Walgreens.
    Adiphene is the newest and fastest weight reduction supplement in market.
    Indeed Adiphene weight reduction pill is the answer for
    those who always goes on food regimen however can't endure the meals carving hunger and the irritability gave rise by dieting.

    If you have been feeling tired and rundown lately, and seem to
    be gaining weight for no apparent reason, then it is time for a
    change. The huge distinction between Adiphene and
    Adipex is that Adiphene is a product that uses a sequence of natural and secure to use ingredients.
