Happy Friday! Ready for the weekend?!
This morning I’m headed out on a 10 hour roadtrip with 3 kids and 2 dogs. And I’m pretty excited about it.
I love a roadtrip. I always thought everyone loved roadtrips because my parents always seemed chipper at 5 am on Christmas morning when we’d get up to make the drive to New Orleans but I’ve learned in recent years that not everyone loves them.
My husband hates them which is really a shame because he’s so good at keeping me entertained on a roadtrip. I’m sure he’s grateful that he has to stay behind for work this time around.
As much as I love a roadtrip, a drink is always required at the end. Because stopping to pee every hour is only fun for the first… well, it’s really not fun at all.
I’ve made SO many sangrias this summer and I think this Tropical Sangria may be my favorite. It’s fresh squeezed orange juice and white wine with fresh pineapple, mango, and limes thrown in. And then right before you serve it, you add in some sparkling water. This is going to sound crazy but something happens to the mango once you add the sparking water – it’s almost like it becomes bubbly. It’s so yummy.
You have to make this before summer ends! I promise you won’t regret it!
