If ever a drink were to remind me of summer it would be Sangria (also Prosecco) the mere hint takes me to summer nights you just don’t want to end. This makes it the PERFECT summer drink for any warm occasion!
The other night I went over to my friend Michelles for an impromptu wine tasting which started with Sangria and ended with an oaky Merlot. Michelle made this Sangria with one of my favourite Naked Wines The Cellar Works Red 2013, this red is light, easy and so very drinkable on its own. However, when used as the Sangria base it takes on a whole new life making it utterly delicious but without the dark aftertaste you sometimes get with red wine.
This red is so smooth it makes easy listening sound like death metal! Michelle added watermelon, strawberries and sparkling water to the mix. This kept is fresh and oh so summery.
