End of Summer Sangria & A Feature at Momma’s Meals

I’m feeling pretty famous today! Why? Because Tammi at Momma’s Meals is featuring me on the blog today as her Featured Friday Co-Host. I can hardly contain my excitement!

Momma's Meals

This gal is putting on her finest apron and piggy pink heels to celebrate her fame. All I need now is a tiara to bring it all together (ahem, mom).

Tammi came up with Featured Friday’s to meet new bloggers, try new food, and expand her knowledge in the kitchen. Every Friday she features a different foodie, along with one of their recipes. Fun, right?

I couldn’t just leave Tammi hanging while she’s busting her hump in the kitchen whipping up one of my dishes. That would be wrong, so I chose one of her recipes and got to shakin'(literally). I decided to make her End of Summer Sangria.

I have been on the hunt for a good sangria recipe for months now. I’ve tried several recipes over the course of the summer, with no success… until now. This sangria is absolutely delicious, and I was pleased as pie when I took a sip and discovered it was tasty. It’s fruity, tart, and sweet; all the things that make an exceptional sangria.

I plucked a pretty pitcher from the cabinet and mixed up the sangria right in the pitcher- less clean up is always a good thing.

Sangria is all about the cheap wine- the cheaper the better. I started by pouring a cheap bottle of sweet red wine into the pitcher, then mixed in some triple sec, peachtree schnapps, orange pineapple juice, cranberry juice, a splash of sprite, and a few orange slices. So easy, yet so good.

Sangria for the weekend? Don’t mind if I do. Now, go on over to Momma’s Meals to see what recipe of mine Tammi chose to feature. Tell her I said hi!

    I like sangria. Well, I like eating the fruit out of sangria. That counts, right? So if you need someone to eat the fruit, I’m so there.

    And now I know a famous person. Right on. :)

    And yes, when it comes to sangrias, the less expensive the wine, the better. ;)

    Congrats on the feature! This sangria DOES sound perfect…sangria has probably been what I missed most this summer being pregnant, I can’t wait to drink it by the boatload next summer :P

    congrats on your feature! albeit a belated congrats…duh. :) catching up is great, but i start to feel nerdy when i missed something important. go you!

    also, i have had the same issue with sangria this summer; i know what i like, and most i’ve made have fallen short. but just reading what’s in this? I feel like i’d love it. i’m going to have to make this one before it gets too fall-ish outside. yum. so pretty, too…i always love the way sangria looks.
