Sip It :: Summertime Sangria

Sip Sip Hooray | Sangria Bar

I don’t know if you’re like me, but summertime somehow stresses me out. In my head it’s full of days lounging on the beach, picnics with the kids and drinks with umbrellas — but reality? It’s still the daily grind but with the added longing to be outside soaking up the sun. In an effort to take a moment to pause and just ENJOY the moment, I invited a few of my closest girls over for a much needed cocktail hour. Sangria and chatting were our only two agenda items. Pure. Summer. Bliss.

I didn’t fuss much over setting up an extravagant table since the whole point was to relax and unwind. I planned to serve only one cocktail (Yellow Tail Sangria) so I drew from the sangria for color inspiration. Peach and plum flowers accompanied by actual fresh peaches and plums added the perfect summer touch to my backyard patio table.

I created this print just for the occasion. It summed up how I was feeling about finally getting to spend some summer down-time with my girlfriends.

I love simple cocktails. Yellow Β Tail Sangria can be enjoyed either chilled on its own, over ice, with fresh fruit, a sprinkle of mint, or a splash of soda. I chose to serve it chilled, with fresh fruit (peaches, plums and grapes). I also set out a carafe of lemon lime soda which ended up being a great mixer. It gave the sangria a slight bubbly taste.

I let guests serve themselves which worked out great. We sat around, chatted, and sipped. It was perfect.

I loved how easy the Yellowtail Sangria was to serve and all the girls loved how it tasted. It’s a great choice for your next summer gathering.
