This past week we were visiting friends in the Hamptons. When the kids were napping, the adults enjoyed an outdoor lunch of charcuterie and a pitcher of sangria. Our hosts had made the tasty beverage the night before and let the flavors of the fruit soak in. The result: Pure summer refreshment.
The generous mix-master shared his recipe with me and I snapped a few pictures--one of the drink and one of me snuggling with my little one poolside.
