White Sangria

This past weekend, I hosted my sister’s bridal shower and needed a fun drink for the ladies so chose to make a batch of White Sangria.  It was super tasty so wanted to share the recipe with you all!

What you will Need:

  • White Grape Juice
  • Sparkling Water
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Fresh Basil
  • Ice Cube Trays
  • White Wine (optional)

 What to Do:

Use ice cube trays to freeze water and blueberries.  This is not only pretty but functional.  Then combine all other ingredients and let sit for about 20 minutes. Add blueberry ice cubes and you are all set.  The grape juice and sparkling water should be equal parts.  Add as much or as little fruit as preferred.  The longer the fruit sits, the sweeter the sangria becomes!  If you want to take it up another notch add white wine!!

Blueberry French Toast Bake

Have I mentioned before how much I adore Pintrest?  Free recipes!!! I wanted to share one we recently tried for a quick and easy, but still tasty breakfast.  You know we will take this over cearel bars any day.  Also, it is super simple and relatively mess free, and can be prepped the night before.  This one is making the list for any overnight guests in the future.
