Poinsettia Sangria

sangria 3

Let’s not talk about the abysmal quality of this photo, okay?  Just trust me when I tell you that this stuff is yummy.

Truly, I’d planned to re-shoot this photo, but my week is not going as planned and I’m just trying to “go with the flow” instead of resorting to breathing in a brown paper bag.

Ahh, the holiday season.  Gotta love it.

And actually, I do love it just a little bit more with this in hand.  And by swapping out the alcohol for a little more cranberry juice and some lemon-lime soda, this can easily be adapted for a kid-friendly version.

    I was half expecting there to be pointsettia petals in the drink!
    This sounds really good. I’ll consider making it for a Christmas party that I’m hosting in a couple of weeks.

      Thanks Amy and Sue. I was disappointed the vibrancy of the fruit didn’t show through in the picture, but I’m still (obviously) learning my way around food photography! 🙂

10 EASY SLOW COOKER MEALS RECIPE BOOK

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
