Springtime is in full swing and I am certainly raising my glass to that! It is time for everyone to try my refreshing, but light, Springtime White Wine Sangria. This sangria is simple to make and elegant for any occasion. Fresh seasonal fruit and wine combine to create the perfect refreshing beverage for both Spring and Summer get-togethers. And, it’s only 150 calroies! What? I’m drinking the whole pitcher! I suggest welcoming this glorious season with a refreshing glass of my White Wine Sangria.
I’ve been an extremely busy bee with Spring cleaning and working on my vegetable garden, but I am enjoying every moment.
It is time to lighten up for Spring!
