    Thanks for the giveaway! When I do drink, I love me a big, salty margarita! Otherwise I enjoy a delicious cup of Irish Breakfast tea sweetened with Italian sweet cream while I read a great romance. 🙂

    Now that it’s warming up in NC, I’ll be making pitchers of Sangria. There are lots of great recipes online. I usually start with a sweet red wine (a cheap wine is fine!). Add a little brandy and a little bit of 7-Up or Sprite or lemon/lime seltzer (some lemon-flavored drink). If I’m in the mood, I’ll also add a splash of OJ or pomegranate juice. Some people add sugar. Add whatever cut up fruit you like–orange, lime, apple, maraschino cherries. If you are going to marinate overnight with the fruit, remove the “old” fruit before serving and add new…for presentation purposes, so the fruit is fresh.

    You can also use a sweet white wine and flavor with mangos and mango juice. That makes a nice twist.

    It’s a refreshing drink for parties–that you are hosting or that you can bring to other parties. Tweak your recipe until you come up with your “signature sangria” that guests will make special requests for!

      Oh, hon, you hit it with sangria!! MMMMMMMMM and I just might have to try your white wine idea! I have a great bottle of Moscato d’Asti chillin’ in the fridge right now! Might have to break it out 🙂

    During the day I just drink a big glass of tea while I’m reading. Sometimes in the evening I like to relax and have a glass of wine while I read. Right now my favorite is a red called Menage a Trois. With a Double Chocolate Chip Cookie you have desert! Of course, anything with Tequila is good too! Thanks for the giveaway!

      Oooo, that’s a sexy sounding wine! Might have to try it out! Is it a wet or dry wine? And anything with double chocolate chip cookies is ♫awesome♫

    I really prefer diet coke to any alcoholic beverage, but the occasional frozen strawberry daiquiri (how 80’s, I know) hits the spot.

    • Melissa Smith

      March 26, 2012 at 5:19 pm

      LOL, I like virgin strawberry daiquiri’s. I find the alcoholic drinks much too tart to enjoy. But good suggestion!

    If I drink it’s a Strawberry Daiquiri but usually it’s just coffee or tea.

    Shadow! So nice to see you stop by 🙂 I don’t drink that often, but when I do, it’s one of two drinks. Either Moscato or Disaronno and Pepsi. But my everyday drink is and has always been, sweet tea! Even my preschoolers know Mrs. Smith doesn’t drink coffee, she drinks tea 😀

    Thank you to Cassandra, lilblupixie, Mel B, Tina, and Georga for stopping by! I wish you all great luck!

    And don’t forget to go through the comments and ‘like’ the drink you all like the best! If there happens to be a tie, I’ll use to choose my winner!
