Grapefruit Sangria

Grapefruit_Sangria_Feature

Happy #WineWednesday!!!  I can’t believe the week is halfway over already!  Last weekend was complete perfection (you can see it all documented on Insta), but there is SO much to get done before our big catalog shoot at work next week.  Cue the anxiety!  I will definitely be enjoying a glass of wine tonight to calm the nerves :-)

Today I’m sharing the Grapefruit Sangria recipe I created/shot for work last month.  I was really on the hunt for some unique sangria options and wanted to throw a little grapefruit in there to mix things up a bit.  Grapefruit is something I do not get enough of and I realized that with the grapefruity presence in our Sauvignon Blanc (as well as it making mean mimosa!), it would be the perfect fit for a super citrusy sangria.
