The Modern Girl Sangria

The Modern Girl Sangria

Spring is here and summer is just around the corner. It's time to have some much needed refreshing outdoor fun. The kind of fun the winter months can't provide, like hanging out with friends and watching the sunrise, patio dining, outdoor music festivals, going to the beach or spending a Saturday at the lake.

Before my life got super busy. I can remember having a life this time of year. Oh, Fun! Outside dining with friends, having barbeques, road trips, looking for outdoor venues with live music. I didn't care about the genre of music or the performing band. I only wanted to dance outside, meet up with friends, meet new people and have a great cocktail.

It's great on a sunny summer day and even better when you add fruit or soda water.

Nowadays with fitness being mainstream people want to know what's going into their body and will it add extra pounds with it or will they have to sacrifice something later. I like a variety of mixed drinks. But for the modern spring and summer girl, a refreshing semi-sweet sangria may be the drink for you and is a perfect go-to for any occasion.

Here are 5 Spring and Summer Sangrias for the modern girl.
