You guys! I’m leaving for Grenada tomorrow and I’m stressed because I’m totally not a fan of flying. When I say “I’m not a fan” I mean I really really really hate flying.

Like for real.

Like I went to my doctor and insisted she write me a prescription for Xanax. So, that should be fun. My best friend said I should live tweet my experience with the hashtag #BranonXan. Which sounds like fun in theory but really would just leave my readers wondering if I lost my mind.

Also, I realize I just started two sentenced with the work “like.” My high school English teacher is probably cursing me from Ohio.

Since I won’t be home on Thanksgiving I’m handing this recipe to my husband and insisting he make it for his family in Connecticut.

They can drink this delicious Thanksgiving libation and I will sip on rum cocktail through an umbrella straw. I’m sad that I won’t be home to gorge myself on turkey but at least I can eat seafood and drink cocktails with Gina.

So, there is that.

If you’re not a fan of adding sugar to your sangria you’re in luck with this recipe. I opted to instead us Truvia brown sugar blend (so good!) instead of the usual superfine sugar.

    I always have a bit of leftover wine after big dinners (hard to believe but true). I think I’ll have this sangria with my turkey sandwiches the day after!

    This sounds luscious! Do you need to add Truvia or any sugar? Have you tried it without?

    I love that you used Truvia in place of sugar – I bet you can’t even tell the difference! Have a great trip! My aunt is the same as you – hates flying and always medicates herself 😉

    I’m so proud of you for boarding that plane and going! And really, those cocktails with the umbrella straws will make it totally worth it. (Plus, Xanax. Of course.) Cheers to you!
