Wino Wednesday and a Giveaway!


Welcome back to Wino Wednesday with Aubrey from High-Heeled Love and Myself!

Three Simple Rules:

1) Take the Button
2) Write a Wine-related Post
3) Link-up!

It's been a while since I hosted a giveaway here so I figured now was as good a time as any!

Rewined recently released their Summer Seasonal Candle and I was stoked to see it was Sangria!

So one lucky Wino will win one this month courtesy of yours truly :)

In honor of the giveaway I thought I would share my favorite Sangria Recipe. I found it a few years ago in Cosmo and it has been my go-to for all kinds of summer get-togethers!

Disclaimer: I'm drinking Sangria, but it may or may not be this recipe.
Look at me, do you really expect me to remember?

1 bottle of red wine (I like to use Cabernet)
1/4 of Orange Liqueur (I use triple sec)
1 orange (thin sliced)
1 lime (thin sliced)
1 can of pineapple chunks in 100% juice
2 cups of lemon lime club soda

Combine everything except for the club soda and let it sit in the fridge overnight (or at least 3-4 hours) so the fruit can really flavor the drink and soak up the alcohol! Strain the fruit (you don't have to but it keeps people from swallowing seeds or complaining about pulp) and mix in the club soda. You can put a couple of pieces of fruit in each glass as you serve or simply eat it :) Use fresh fruit to garnish if you'd like!

It's pretty easy and it's delicious. Not too sweet and less sugar than a lot of recipes. So link-up your Wino Wednesday Posts and enter to win a Rewined Candle for yourself!
