Scheming and Pipe-Dreaming

Mondays are truly the worst! After a relaxing weekend of mimosa sipping and t.v. watching, having to get up, get dressed, and put on a bra is just too much to ask sometimes. Yesterday was no exception.  Continue reading “Scheming and Pipe-Dreaming”

It’s not a Sprinkle without sangria

So, one of my dearest, closest friends is having another baby. Her baby boy will be here in September and to ensure that she has everything she needs for her second bundle of joy we’re all gathering for a “Sprinkle”! For those of you who don’t know, a shower is when you have your first baby. Guests literally shower you with gifts, diapers, and Baby Magic body wash. Should you choose to have another baby, your friends may opt to throw you a sprinkle. Instead of getting towers of diapers and random onesies that say “The Ladies Love Me” or “Suri ain’t got Nothin on Me”, your friends may opt to get you ear plugs or a wine of the month membership. Your mom will still get you that diaper tower though, no worries. 

I know that I am of that age where procreation is running rampant, but I can barely imagine having a baby. Honestly. I mean think about it; no coffee, sushi, wine, coffee, deli meat, salmon… and did I mention no coffee!?!?!?! I just….I just can’t.  Just thinking about makes me reach for my wineglass. Luckily, my wine glass is full of sangria. What’s that you say? You want sangria too? Oh, I got you honey. Now sit back and drink up. Pass that onesie over here….yes, it is adorable.

Makea’s Sprinkle Sangria

1 bottle of sauvignon blanc
1 bottle of moscato
1/2 cup of peach schnapps
1/2 cup of grand marnier
2 cups of fresh cut fruit (strawberries, grapes, apples, oranges)

Soak the fruit in the Grand Marnier and Peach Schnapps for 4-6 hours. In a pitcher, combine the sauvignon blanc and moscato wines. Stir in the marinated fruit. Now you can add just the fruit, but why would you do that?  Go ahead and pour it all in the wine. Mix in some ice cubes and drink up ladies….It’s a party!
