Today I wanted to share a delicious and flavorful Sparkling Fruity Sangria. Perfect for those days of celebrating or just hanging out by the pool.
First thing first. Let’s all wish Taylor at Food Faith Fitness a Happy 2nd Blogiversary. Congrats Taylor and here’s to many many more blog birthdays! With it being Food Faith Fitness birthday and all, I wanted to make a fun celebratory drink. If you’d like to hurry me along and get to the sangria recipe and/or enter the giveaway, then head down to the bottom of this post. I won’t get my feelings hurt, promise.
Since I wanted a celebratory drink, I decided what better way to celebrate then with a Sangria. Say hello to this delicious and bubbly Sparkling Fruity Sangria.
I’ve always used to think that Sangria’s were hard to make, until I went to my girlfriend, Jessica’s birthday party and she had some delicious Sangria. She told me the gist of the recipe and I’ve been making Sangria ever since. They’re perfect for any celebration and I love that they aren’t heavy on the tummy. What I enjoy most about this Sangria is that the fruits keep their texture. They’re crispy and flavorful. Plus it only takes 2 hours to throw together. No having to let it sit over night so the fruits can blend and marry. Nope. It quick, delicious and bubbly. What could get any better?
This Sparkling Fruity Sangria is perfect for any type of gathering, especially a Blog Birthday. I just know your going to love it and probably need to make more than one pitcher because they’ll go fast. Let’s raise a glass in honor of Food Faith Fitness.
