Strawberry Lemonade Sangria

Serves: 6

Time: 5 min

Difficulty: Easy

Last night, I was once again in the mood for some new recipes. Since it was a nice warm summer day, I decided it was high time for a cool, refreshing drink. My wife found an article/video with 4 Frozen Sangria recipes, and we decided to try out this Strawberry Lemonade Sangria. Other than the process of freezing the wine and lemonade, this is a super quick and easy drink recipe that’s sure to cool you off on the warmest of days.

Ingredients

  1. 1 bottle white wine, half frozen into cubes
  2. 1 1/2 c. lemonade, frozen
  3. 1 1/2 c. strawberries, frozen
  4. 1/3 c. rum

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients into blender and mix until fully blended.
  2. Serve in glasses garnished with fresh fruit slice(s) of your choice (lemon, strawberry, etc).

Notes

Nothing special to note here, other than the fact that you will need to ensure you have enough time to freeze the wine and lemonade before blending and mixing. Other than that, super easy and sure to please.

Bon Appétit!

 

Honeydew Smoothies

Honeydew Smoothies

This morning for breakfast, I decided to make my wife and I some smoothies. And with a full honeydew melon on hand to utilize, I thought I’d try out a recipe I found on the Food Network website (with one small additional ingredient). I was admittedly nervous about the outcome, since honeydew is a pretty under-the-radar fruit, often just seen in fruit salads along with cantaloupe, strawberries, grapes, etc. It’s rarely the “featured” fruit in anything, so even finding a recipe (at all) that featured it was no easy task. Regardless, both of us were surprised by how delicious these smoothies ended up being, and will gladly make more of them in the future. If you’re in the mood for a smoothie and have a few cups of honeydew melon at your disposal, I’d highly recommend you try this recipe. You’ll be glad you did!

The weather here in Michigan was absolutely gorgeous this past weekend, with both Saturday and Sunday playing host to mid-70’s temperatures and sunny skies. In honor of such beautiful weather, I decided to try my hand at making a cool, refreshing drink. So I decided to search out a recipe for Sangria and give it a shot, and came across a recipe for Peach Pineapple Sangria on AllRecipes.com. And since this is the first time I’ve ever made a Sangria, it makes a great addition (and new recipe category) for my 50 in 15 Challenge.
