Mix Up Some Sangria! with

Crystal Cathcart

Looking to liven things up a bit? Mix up some Sangria and see where it takes you.

Thinking of being carefree immediately suggests memories of younger years when routine was filled more with playful times than endless to-do lists. A wildly versatile drink, Sangria radiates with the essence of being carefree once again. Sangria invites creativity and welcomes mixing things up, requiring a willingness to generously raid both the fruit bowl and the liquor cabinet. Simply mix the wine of your choice—red or white!—with some fruit and brandy, chill overnight, and add a dash of seltzer for bubbles when you're ready to serve. Classic approaches use lemon, while indulgent Sangrias can incorporate flavors of black cherries or tropical mango Tonight, step away from the management of daily responsibilities. Turn instead to innocence, creativity, and the precious joy felt when we allow ourselves to be carefree.
