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 😉 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!

Time for lemonade!!

This place, called Lemonade, at LAX (Los Angeles International Airport), is such an adorable place. It’s located at Terminal 5. The food looked great; though, I didn’t get to try it, since I had already eaten something, but I did try their lemonade and cookie- haha! My dessert!

Of the lemonade selection they had that day, I chose to try the strawberry rhubarb. You know me and strawberries. I choose that fruit over all! It was absolutely refreshing! I loved it! I plan to try the food next time I’m in town, but I really wanted to try their lemonade.

I found an informational article on what rhubarb is: http://thepioneerwoman.com/food-and-friends/rhubarb-101/. Rhubarb reminds me of chard. I have yet to find this and try using it in my cooking. I learned something new that day!

Their chocolate-chip cookie was to-die-for! Definitely satisfied my craving!

There’s many locations of Lemonade in Cali. Check it out next time you’re in town!
