Bubbles, wine and fresh fruit…yes! Sangria is one of my favorite drinks and have made it twice so far on Nutmeg Nanny. A delicious honeycrisp apple sangria and summertime sangria. This sangria is a little bit different since I decided to use a little pink bubbly wine.
I also packed the sangria full of fresh fruit I had sitting in my fruit bowl. You honestly could use just about anything you have at home. However, always make sure to add citrus. It’s key. I also threw in some fresh mint because I had tons of that too.
Oh and if you are in the market for a new wine opener you’re in luck! Le Creuset is offering to giveaway a totally fabulous activ-ball wine opener! When is it ever a bad thing to have an extra wine opener knocking around?
