HAPPY HOUR: Summer Sangria

WHITE STRAWBERRY-LEMON SANGRIA

WHITE STRAWBERRY-LEMON SANGRIA

I can not wait to try this at a family barbecue or sitting on the patio on a hot summer night! Stealing this recipe from http://www.KITCHENTREATY.com and thought you all would love it!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced
  • 1 apple, cored and sliced (any kind)
  • 1 cup strawberries, hulled and sliced lengthwise
  • 1 750 ml bottle white wine (a dry-ish white wine is best – I like Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay)
  • ½ cup white rum
  • 4 cups lemon-lime soda

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Add lemon slices to a large pitcher, then the apples, then the strawberries.
  2. Pour the wine and rum over the top.
  3. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 4 – 5 hours.
  4. Remove from refrigerator and add the lemon lime soda. Add a few pieces of the fruit to your glass and pour sangria over to serve.

**Freeze strawberries and lemon slices in an ice cube tray for a unique touch

INSTAPOST: Largest Honky Tonk in the World!

This past weekend we went to Billy Bob’s, the Largest Honky Tonk in the world! We wore our cowboy boots, saw bull riding, ate real Texas BBQ, listened to live country music, and even two-stepped! Here are a few instagram photos from the weekend.
