In celebration of our beautiful new apartment and our first dinner party here, I mixed together a sangria. The sunset setting over the ocean (Yes, we have an ocean view!) was so gorgeous, I was simply inspired.
This sangria calls for three types of Italian liquers. Don’t be intimidated, you can easily find them at your local Beverages and More. The final flavor of the cocktail is suave, weighty and delicious. Perfect for a party!
