In my opinion, sangria is the perfect summertime drink. I love how versatile it is and pretty much anyone can make their own version. A great foundation for a signature cocktail! Since this weekend is Memorial Day weekend and the unofficial start of summer, I thought I’d share my six picks for summer sangrias!
As you all know from my previous posts from 2013 and 2014 that St. Patrick’s Day is a super special time of year for me as it’s always been a tradition celebrated with my late amazing Irish gramma. The food is always at the top of my list for must-haves for celebrating this holiday properly but the beer is a close second! The traditional Shepherd’s Pie, Beef and Guinness Stew, and Bangers and Mash are my faves and can be found in the Irish pubs around Raleigh. But what about dessert? I’ve never thought much about dessert because we always had shamrock cookies and that was just fine. This year, I’m finding traditional and updated traditional desserts that I’m dying to make!
