Say Yes to Summer with this Kiwi Lime Mint Sangria Recipe

Now that it’s unofficially summer, I think we can officially call it sangria season! It’s likely that sangria season is my favorite time of year. Fruity, boozy, winey, super refreshing and perfectly party-ready! Sangria is made for front porch sipping, slow and easy back patio happy hours, and prepping in advance for all of your summer parties. This kiwi limi mint sangria recipe might just be my favorite one I’ve whipped up yet! It’s made with fresh kiwi purée (which is a cinch to make) and loaded with refreshing lime and mint so it’s basically summer’s new best cocktail recipe. Don’t be intimidated by the kiwi purée, friends, please! The addition of simple but fresh ingredients like that make a cocktail recipe come alive and it’s really easy to do. Scout’s honor! (Ooo! Do we think I could earn a badge in cocktail mixing?!) I’ll toast to a long, hot awesome summer with a glass of this one, pals, I hope you do the same!

Sparkling Summer Solstice Sangria

June is one of my favorite months of the year, probably due to associating it with the start of summer vacation as a kid.

There’s an energy and lightness that comes along with the summer solstice that begs to be celebrated, which is why today I’m joining up with my pals at Dr. Oetker Virtuoso to share this sangria recipe. Appropriately enough, I’ve dubbed it a sparkling summer solstice sangria, and loaded it up with mango and raspberries so it’s super fruity and delicious, but not overly sweet. Paired with your favorite Virtuoso pizza, it makes for the perfect casual summer cocktail hour on the back patio or front porch.

Caramel Apple Sangria

With Halloween falling on a Saturday this year, I thought a festive, seasonal drink for the grown-ups seemed only appropriate! Along with my friends at Dr. Oetker, I’m sharing this utterly delectable caramel apple sangria, perfect for hosting a crowd or for enjoying when you get back from canvasing the neighborhood for candy. We live in the best trick or treating neighborhood in the city, so I plan to offer a splash to friends as they drop by with their kiddos. Now that, friends, is my kind of treat!

Summer Cocktails

After spending the weekend in warm and balmy DC, I’ve had summer on the brain. Sure, I love spring, but the waterfront native in me just can’t get enough of the warm summer months. A cold cocktail, a water view and flip flops are all it takes to keep me smiling all summer long. From …
