Because it’s just not a party without a refreshing beverage, I want to share a family favorite. Pineapple Sangria, ahhhhh! Now go out and play!
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup lime juice
1 (11.5-oz.) can mango nectar
1/3 cup sugar
1 (750-ml.) bottle fruity white wine
Lime slices, peeled pineapple and mango slices
1 1/2 cups lime flavored sparkling water
1. Stir together juices, liqueur and sugar until sugar has dissolved.
2. Place all ingredients, except sparkling water or champagne, in a pitcher or jug and chill until ready to serve.
3. Just before serving, add sparkling water or champagne.
4. Pour over ice-filled glasses and garnish with fruit slices.
Tip: Make your sangrias ahead and let them steep for a few hours for maximum flavor.
Tip: Everyone’s taste buds are different. Adjust the sweetness level by adding more sugar and/or lime juice.
Invite Design recently launched a new web site as well as an “environmentally conscientious” Green Line. Not only are these invitations eco-friendly but they are absolutely gorgeous. There are so many options to choose from.
All Green Line invitations and envelopes are printed on 100% recycled or tree-free content with environmentally-friendly inks. These invitations can be customized just like the previous Select and Elite invite collections.
Putting all of this together is a lot of work and an extreme amount of time and research. I’m very happy for Genevieve and Nicole on the launch of this new Green Line. Congrats!
Kristy emailed me to tell me about her custom invites and stationery. Kristy’s website is called Momental and she creates invites for all occasions. I was looking through the site and one thing I really liked about Kristy’s work is the variety she displays. There are many different styles present on her site. So, no matter what you’re looking for chances are that Kristy is going to be able to help you out.
