mix & match sangria

summer = sangria.
and the last weekend in august = girls summer "glamping" {aka fancy camping} trip with my best girl.

so in honour of both of those things, today i'm sharing with you an easy formula to create a custom batch of sangria.
the summertime anthem for any girls getaway.
boozy, girly, fruity, & perfect for a weekend away from boys.

cheers. xo.
