Spring Sangrias

When the weather starts warming up, I crave all things fruity and alcohol infused. There's nothing more refreshing on a hot day than an ice cold sangria. Too bad it's raining in LA right now! Note to Mother Nature: April showers bring May flowers. It's a little late for this business.
Last week, Mayra of life is BANANAS, posted her recipe for the perfect sangria and I've been dying to try it. In fact, I bought all of the ingredients and was planning to make some for my family on Mother's Day but unfortunately it was a bit too cold.
Check out Mayra's recipe and while you're there, browse around her amazing blog. She's hilarious and fashionable, which pretty much equals the best kind of blog out there!

I love sangria and that white one in the 2nd pic looks so refreshing. There is something about fruit and wine that go so well together. I've never tried making it myself. That's something I should add to my summer must-do list ;)
