Wine, wine, wine!

Happy #WineWednesday!

Last year, my girlfriends celebrated my birthday at Amuse Wine Bar. I loved it there! I got to try a variety of different wines, red and white. It was awesome! And yes, I drank responsibly. Always do!

The “Newlywed Specialty Drink!”

My newlywed friends made an awesomely refreshing peach sangria just for their wedding reception this summer. It was so delicious!

Doesn’t this look amazing? It was so refreshing; I had four of these glasses- haha! Whoo!

I loved this drink so much. So much that I replicated it for my family’s bday celebration this past weekend.

It’s a very simple recipe.

Missing the Moscato wine bottle and the fruits, but you get the picture of what we need to make this bad boy ๐Ÿ˜‰ Haha!

  • Peach sparkling water
  • Peach schnapps
  • Moscato wine (regular or pink)
  • Fresh or frozen peaches
  • Fresh or frozen berries (blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)

For my rendition, I used all of the above, including fresh fruits- white/yellow peaches, strawberries, and blackberries, and pink moscato. I’m a fresh fruits kind-of gal!

Bam!!! It was a hit! Tasted very close to the original.

Much thanks to the newlyweds and their wonderful creation! I can’t wait to experiment and make more kinds of sangrias soon!

Happy summer! Cheers!
