The reason I am thinking about sangria today is that the weekend has just begun and it promises to finally act like spring here in Maryland. (Yay!) Temperatures are forecasted to be close to 90 degrees before the weekend ends. That just screams spring soirée! Our backyard is still healing from its winter woes (aka we haven't cleaned it up yet) but the front porch is cozy and welcoming.
Typically, I like red sangria best, but spring is a delicate, tender time so I think a white sangria is in order. The recipe below is from Beverly Mills and Alicia Ross, authors of the Desperation Dinners cookbooks. (Yes, I own two.) I have to admit, I haven't tried it yet, but if you're in town on Sunday afternoon, swing by for a glass and a burger because the Mouse House is past due for a spring soirée!
