White Pear and Apple Sangria

Do you love pretty jewelry?

I DO! :)

I hosted a small get together this past weekend where we had some food, drinks and had a chance to look at (try on and play with) lots of fun Stella and Dot jewelry. Pretty, right?

And what goes with jewelry and appetizers?

Sangria of course…

I made this White Pear and Apple Sangria and it was hit (my husband, who was a bartender in his former life, helped of course)! I thought it was delicious and so did my guests. It is so easy to throw together and you can really modify the fruit to what’s in season or your tastes for that matter. Who doesn’t love something a little bubbly with the added benefits of fruit to nibble on!?

I made this sangria a few hours before the party and let it chill in the refrigerator (and the fruit had a chance to soak up the flavors and vice versa).

TIP: If you are like me and have to do things way in advance, I actually wanted to cut the fruit the morning of the party and didn’t want to make the sangria until a few hours before the party. I learned through my best friend google, that you can cut pears and apples and add ½ part water and ½ part lemon juice to keep it from browning. I did this and then used a strainer to drain the lemon & water mixture when I was ready to make the sangria.  It worked perfectly and I didn’t taste the lemon at all.

      I think I have to agree with you- I like sangria more than jewelry too! This is such an easy recipe and everyone will love it. It was gone pretty quickly at my party and I wish I would have made more.
      Thanks for stopping by!
