White Wine Sangria: Perfect Party Refreshment
It’s party time! My sister, Maddy, came to town from Denver to sell her one of a kind jewelry made from vintage pieces. I invited my friends and neighbors to come and see her baubles and have a bite to eat. Another one of my sisters, Mary, flew in from Seattle to join the fun. I enjoy serving a signature drink and with the weather cooperating for a change.
We had a lovely sunny day for the event, and a glass of white wine sangria sounded perfect. For autumn gatherings, an apple cider sangria is a delicious option!
If you’re in the Denver area you can find Maddy’s jewelry at The Perfect Petal and Posh in Larimer Square or check out her website.
