Happy Thursday! We have almost made it to Friday and you know what that means: drink time!
This week Nicole and I are celebrating the 75th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz because the IMAX version comes out this weekend. I’m not much of a movie person and I am forever getting The Wizard of Oz confused with Willa Wonka. Isn’t that weird? Like, they are nothing alike but I always have to stop and think about which is which.
I do know that there are ruby slippers in The Wizard of Oz and I never miss an opportunity to make something red and sparkly. I decided to put an apple cider sangria in my sprinkle-rimmed glasses because it’s just the perfect time of year for cider. Plus honeycrisps showed up in my grocery store this week! Yeeeesss!
The sangria is amazing. I love that it’s super fall-ish with the cider but the bubbly wine makes it seem less heavy and rich. I love it and I see it becoming a big favorite for fall and winter parties.
Nicole made Over the Rainbow Drinks which might be the cutest drink ever! Go check it out!
