I am happy.
The party I hosted last night was a great success which is always one of the best feelings in the world.
This White Sangria was one of the drinks I had on offer. Light and refreshing. The perfect poolside and party libation.
I might have to make another batch today.
2 large oranges, 1 cut into ¼-inch-thick slices, the other 1 juiced
1 large lemon, cut into ¼-inch-thick slices
¼ cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier
1 (750-mL) bottle white wine (Pinot Grigio or Chardonnay), chilled
1. Add orange and lemon slices and sugar to a large pitcher; mash gently with a wooden spoon until the sugar dissolves and the fruit releases some juice but is not completely crushed, about 1 minute. Stir in orange juice, liquor and wine. Refrigerate at least 2 hours (up to 8 hours).
2. Before serving, add some ice cubes and stir briskly to redistribute settled fruit and pulp; serve immediately.

I’m all over the band Easter.
The new song Damp Patch is pure, guitar driven heaven.
