I can't help myself, ever since Cinco de Mayo, I've got sangria on the brain. Of all of the drinks I missed last summer, sangria was the one I missed most. To me, enjoying a big glass alongside a bowl of chips and guacamole on the back porch is the epitome of summer. I love the way good sangria is just a tiny bit sweet and filled with the flavors of fresh fruit. In fact, in the summer I will take it over a glass of wine any day of the week. To welcome the summer months, I thought I would share one of my favorite sangria recipes.. Also, if you need some recipes you don't see here, I highly recommend these taco salad and nachos recipes from Kraft.
