Yum As y'all know, we're all about the Art of Entertaining these days. Babysitters are crazy expensive, and once you add drinks with friends to the cost…..nights at a bar just aren't on our regular agenda. So, we have our friends over for nights in. This weekend, I teamed up with Estancia to throw a sangria tasting party. It was honestly the easiest party I've thrown since we moved into our house, and the sangria recipes were a HUGE hit!Estancia Wines are some of my favorites……they're delicious, and a total steal. High quality wine for a great price? I mean, it doesn't get better than that. To prep for our sangria tasting party, I decided to use three different wines to create three distinctive sangria recipes. FYI, people asked a million times which wine was in each….so I highly suggest placing the bottles by your sangria for reference. Other than the sangria, we served a simple cheese to compliment each sangria flavor. Easy enough right?
Sangria is a make ahead drink, in fact…..I suggest making it a few hours in advance and letting it chill in your fridge. The flavors blend, and you can relax and enjoy your party. Such a win! Sangria Tasting Party recipes:
1 pitcher of strawberry lemonade (1 frozen can worth)
1 bottle of sparkling water
Cheese Pairing: Smoked Gouda Decor Tips:
-Use what you've got! These mason jars have been hanging around since our wedding. I added some burlap and ribbon and voila!
-Keep a basic white tablecloth on hand. We've used this one a million times, it washes well and looks a LOT nicer than a plastic tablecloth.
-A table runner adds a lot. I bought a roll of burlap for this party, used it for the table runner and also to make our Cheers Y'all banner. It cost less than $15…….and totally made the tablescape!Have you thrown any parties recently? What are your favorite drink recipes and Art of Entertaining tips?
