Grapefruit Sangria


Avoiding stress in this current era I think is impossible. Oh well, definitely impossible, such is the call of life because it is not anymore about simplicity or being contented with what we have. We want to strive, we want to excel and we want to have better of everything. Perhaps it may not be about striving but working hard to provide the best for the family I know is unavoidable. Nonetheless, we do have the option to take it easy especially during the weekends by slouching in front of tv to catch up on a movie and sip into a boozy drink. But instead of drowning with alcohol, Sangria is a better option. And today, let me share with you how to make this Sangria with grapefruit juice, ice cream soda and mint leaves - just so easy and simple.  

Ingredients (more or less as per taste)
Red wine
Ice-cream soda/ 7-up
Grapefruit juice
Mint leaves.
Ice-cubes
Method
Lightly crush the mint leaves and add into a pitcher
Pour in wine, grapefruit juice and ice-cream soda.
Stir all together and leave it in the fridge.
Before drinking, pour sangria into glasses.
Add ice and garnish with mint leaves.

  8. This is definitely a yummy drink! I normally finely chop up some random fruits and add into the sangria mix. An all time fave is actually to blend them all up for an icy cold sangria smoothie (with lots of fruits).

  12. Boy, I hope you weren't as disappointed in the opening ceremonies as I was. I got to watch them at 3pm my time so it wasn't like I lost any sleep. I'd have been FURIOUS if I woke up at 4 to see them and they were as bad as all that.

    At least you had this FANTASTIC sangria, darling!
