The Best Sangria Ever


The most important thing in life is love.  Intrinsically, we all know this, even if we try to distract ourselves with other things (money, possessions, power- incase you were unsure).  And, not just romantic love.  Familial love, the love of friendship.  When it’s deep enough, it all feels the same.


Today’s recipe is a tribute to the love of lifelong friends.  While I was visiting Canada one of my longest friends, Brittany, made me her infamous Sangria, for which she has graciously shared her recipe.  I’ll leave it in her words, completely.  Make it with love, share it with friends, and enjoy ❤
