Welcome to the LAST DAY of the 4th Annual #SummerDessertWeek event hosted by Angie from Big Bear’s Wife. We've been celebrating all things summer with a week-long event with some of the best summer dessert recipes! 

This week I shared Blueberry-Lemon Ricotta Pound Cake, No Churn Triple Berry Ice Cream and today it's #SangriaSaturday so a sangria is in order.

15 weeks ago I started making 1 minute videos of myself creating a new sangria recipe. Sangria Saturday, I call it. It gave me a sense of purpose and it gave me something to do under quarantine. You can find all of the videos and recipes HERE.

Four months later, I'm still coming up with recipes, I've had 2 wine sponsors and have enough wine to have to build a cellar apparatus to hold it all.

Every day can be a Saturday if you allow it. It's #SangriaSaturday! Slices of fresh pineapple take a PUNCH in this week's sangria. Accented with a special Riesling, spiced rum, sweet grenadine and moonshine soaked maraschino cherries, this week's sangria is dessert, the aperitif and the after party too!

Watch me make the Pineapple Punch Sangria below!

If you're looking to add new wine to your personal collection, I highly recommend Winc. It's a California-based home wine delivery service that offers online membership.
Winc developed a fun quiz to help connect you to wines tailored to your tastes and offers wine delivery right to your door. Use my link and we both get $0 shipping and $20 off the first order.

I hope you’re enjoying these sangria videos as much as I enjoy making them.

If you REALLY like the video(s), gratuities and donations are always appreciated and welcome!

NOTE: For a fun twist, rub the rim of each glass with a cut piece of pineapple and dip each rim in a bowl of sugar. Add a little sweetness to your sangria fun!

I can 100% see myself drinking one of these on the patio while Jackson plays in the sprinkler in the back yard! Love it!

I'm digging all those flavors in there. So tropical and refreshing. Perfect for a summer brunch.
