Who doesn’t love a cold glass of sangria, served on the dock? With the excellent weather we’ve been having in Florida, there is nothing better than a flavorful cocktail, sipped in your very own back yard. An outdoor cocktail wouldn’t be complete without a classic pair of shades however. So when Dicks Cottons Sunglasses asked me to do a post featuring their cool yet classic sunglasses, I thought what a perfect opportunity. A peachy cocktail, with peach nectar, fresh peach slices, raspberries, and paired with a sparkly rosé seemed like the perfect way to say cheers to the weekend. So grab your friends, a pair of Dicks Cottons Sunglasses, some Peach Sangria and celebrate this Floridian Indian Summer.
Southern Living Magazine is definitely one of my top favorite places to find recipes and this Peach Sangria was far from a disappointment. This classic wine based cocktail with a Southern twist is refreshing and not to mention beautiful, especially when served in a clear glass. Great for a party, this cocktail is best prepared the night before so the flavors have time soak and combine. You know what that means… A little extra time to curl your hair before guests arrive! So throw on a pair of Dicks Cottons Sunglasses, pour a glass of Southern Living’s flavorful sangria and remember… It’s 5 o’clock somewhere.
