Tropical Sangria

A citrusy sangria with an island twist was the perfect way to kick off a Summer party. My goal was to find a healthier version, so I was so happy to discover Oh She Glow’s Sunny White Sangria. It definitely fit the bill! Mason jars, paper straws, and DIY labels add a festive finishing touch.

Directions: Add everything except the sugar into a large pitcher and stir well. Add sugar to taste and adjust until your desired sweetness is achieved. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours prior to serving (I chilled mine overnight.) Before serving, you may add some club soda & ice if desired. Taste again and add more sweetener if necessary.
