Today is June 21st.
The first official day of summer.
The summer solstice.
The longest day of the year.
It is also a Tuesday.
And Eric’s brother’s birthday.
And the first day in weeks that we are no supposed to reach temperatures of 100+ here in Texas.
And they are actually forecasting rain. We desperately need rain.
And even with rain and lower temps it is still H.O.T.
And it is still the first day of summer. And THAT deserves a refreshing, ice cold beverage.
This sangria would be lovely at a bridal shower or summer BBQ. Don’t drink wine? No problem! Leave it out (add more juice or soda) and still have a nice flavorful drink.
So how are you celebrating the first ‘offical’ day of summer?
