Now that the weather is warming up, it's time to bust out the sun hats and bring the chairs out onto the balcony - it's outdoor drinking season! While you and your friends dust off the sundresses and get ready for weekends filled with barbecue parties and shaking off the PTSD that is last winter, you're going to need something fun to put into those empty pitchers. Maybe something like...sangria? Below are seven fun sangria recipes to try this weekend. Here's to Sunday Funday making its way back to us!
1. Frozen Fruit Sangria
Why chill your sangria with ice when frozen bits of fruit are available? And the great thing is that they won't water down your wine when they defrost!
2. Mimosa Sangria
It's weekend brunch and you can't choose between the classic mimosa or a fun glass of sangria. But the real question here is, do you even have to?
3. Watermelon Sangria
Refreshing, crisp, and oh-so-perfect for those weekends where you just want to lay in front of an air conditioner all day.
4. Peach Rosé Sangria
I feel like I'd instantly turn into a southern belle while sipping one of these. Like *poof* my sweatpants turn into a Doris Day skirt and I'll start rattling things off like "I'm so hot I'm sweatin' like a sinner in church."
5. Raspberry Lemonade Sangria
Lemonade that's spiked? Talk about a dangerous drink - I could pretty much have a whole pitcher to myself, amiright?
6. Raspberry Mint Sangria
Perfect to sip on as you and your pals delicately devour the appetizers on your patio table.
7. Fireball Sangria
For the most serious of patio drinkers: Take your sangria pitcher and add a spicy kick of whiskey to it. Now to that brunch I'd most definitely go to.
