Sangria Blanco and a new Graduate in the Family!

IMG_5052Today’s recipe:  Sangria Blanco!

A special congratulations to my sister for completing her university degree!  We had some special drinks and a barbecue tonight to celebrate.  Beau (the dog) greeted the new university graduate with some turquoise balloons at the front door.  My Dad is in the picture too (I think he is freeing Beau from his balloon greeter duties, so Beau can have dinner too).

My sister loves refreshing summery drinks.  This recipe certainly fits the bill – it was a refreshing combination of green tea, orange juice, prosecco, fresh lemons and fresh oranges.  I chopped the oranges into cubes and put them in the freezer for two hours and they acted as ice cubes to keep the drinks cool.  In a pitcher it is the perfect elegant summer beverage.  I would also make this drink without the wine (for those who do not drink).  Add more green tea and orange juice and add in the fresh citrus fruits.  It is sure to impress your guests!IMG_5055IMG_5028IMG_5045IMG_5062
