We all patiently wait for Thursday to roll around for 2 reasons: 1) Happy Hour is completely justified, and 2) it means Friday is very close. I see these as perfectly good reasons to love the second T-Day of the week. In honor of the tradition we have started just a few short weeks ago, I would love to share with you one my favorite cocktail recipes. Sangria is always a no-brainer when looking for something fruity to sip, but I bet you haven't had the souther twist version! Today I dare you to venture out of your comfort zone and shake up (or in this case stir up) something a little different. Enjoy the recipe with instructions below. Cheers!
2 cups Riesling wine
2 cups grapefruit juice
1/2 cup orange liquor
2 cups champagne

Fresh mint for garnish
