White Strawberry Sangria

TGIF!!  I am so ready for the weekend, and to get the weekend started, we wanted something a little more special than an ordinary ole glass of wine… Now I’m not knocking a glass of wine, but this fruity, very strawberry, glass of Sangria, made cocktail time a lot more interesting today.  Last summer we did a Peach Sangria, that was infused with juicy summer peaches and lots of other fruits and we totally loved it, so when I saw this recipe for White Strawberry Sangria, I knew we had to try it.  This sangria definitely screams summer and in my neck of the woods, summer is right around the corner.  Beware, it’s very EASY to drink.  Try it, you’ll like it!
