Riesling Sangria

The school year is quickly coming to a close and the weather is heating up just as quick. April and May brought many 80+ degree days and we've already spent the majority of June in the 90's. I think we are looking at a Hot, Hot, Summer ahead of us! I love the hot weather and all it brings.

I am really looking forward to many lazy days, time at the lakes and rivers and bbq's with friends. Days playing and having picnics at the park, heading to the pool, or running through the sprinkler in the back yard.

Riesling Sangria

One tradition we started a few years ago was kicking off Summer with a fun BBQ on Memorial Day weekend with some of our best friends. Before the BBQ I was on the search for a delicious and refreshing drink to share and after looking through recipes, I decided to just keep it simple and this was definitely the way to do it!


1 bottle of Riesling
About 2/3 bottle of Sprite
Raspberry Lemonade
sliced strawberries

It is as simple as mixing it all together and letting it chill.


Then, I made these fun cups for us girls to drink our new delicious Riesling Sangria from. Because all gals need a fabulous glass to drink from, right?


Then the only thing left was to enjoy some friend time and relax with a fun drink.



So now we have officially kicked off Summer and are ready to lounge! Just less than two weeks of school left and my 8th grader is counting down!

Are your kids out of school yet? When did/do they finish?
