#cookingwithCICI,

Citrus Sangria

Heya!

It’s Sunday. You’ve gone to Church and now you’re lazing around at home wondering how to spend your afternoon before your next semester begins on Monday (well, at least for some of us 😖)…or before another harrowing week at work begins. Not to worry, we’ve got the perfect solution for you, get up and into the kitchen and make this tantalizing Sangria! It will nly take a few minutes. You can then sit back into your sofa and watch Modern Family. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it? Then what are you waiting for? Go ahead and get started. You can find the recipe below. Let us know how it turns out if you try it.


Prep time: 15 minutes

Yield: About 6-8 glasses

Ingredients:

NB: We ended up using only one lemon and one orange.

6. It’s preferable to let the sangria chill in the fridge for a bit. However, if time is lacking serve with ice-cubes and enjoy!
