Sunset Sangria | A delicious sangria that made with orange, strawberry, and rum that will quickly become a favorite!
The name of my blog is no joke. I do enjoy a nice glass of white wine while I’m crafting. (Actually, a glass of white wine, a quiet house, some Florence + The Machiene, and my craft room seem like a slice of heaven to me.) In the summer time, I start to obsess a little, looking for the perfect cocktails to enjoy with friends. I have this image in my mind that my summers are going to be spent kicking back on my deck entertaining. I apparently think that I’m part of the cast of a sitcom of childless friends. Ha!
Anyway, this is a sangria recipe that I came up with recently when I was kicking back with some friends. It was perfect for a hot summer day! It’s nice and refreshing without being too sweet. And it even got the attention of some of our non wine drinking guests!
I really love white wine sangrias, but the added sugar that is in some recipes makes it a little too sweet for me sometimes. (I know, a crazy thought if I’ve ever had one.) With this recipe, the combination of the very sweet Moscoto and the fruit makes it just right!
This is also a really easy recipe to make. The last time I had guests coming, I made a batch in about twenty minutes the night before and it was perfect and ready for the next day.
I use a straw to quickly hull my washed strawberries.
And I use an egg slicer for the strawberries (a great idea I first saw here).
My last suggestion . . . . make a second pitcher!
