Fashion || Skinnies and Prints in Charleston

We went to Charleston over the weekend and had the best time. I'd like to think of it as a baby moon…just with all the kids. Haha. I'll tell you all about the trip soon, because you should know about all the delicious food we ate and the cool things to see in Charleston, even with kids! 

But first, I'll show you some of what I wore. I carried the camera everywhere we went for pictures of the city and the hubs was able to snap some pics for me when the kids were entertaining themselves. Which, by the way, was never on the way to dinner when I was all put together. The heat and humidity did nothing for my hair and makeup!

Summer Mocktail Sangria Recipe

There isn't much tastier in the summertime than a good sangria, am I right? I must admit that I've been missing fruity cocktails this summer and that's why I've been sharing some fun mocktail recipes! This particular one uses two different kinds of Fre Alcohol-removed wines. One, a brut, which is delicious. It's has the taste of a good, dry champagne, which happens to be my favorite beverage. A la, Heather of the Real Housewives OC.

The other is a chardonnay, which adds a bit of sweetness to the recipe and balances out the bubbly. 

Ready for the recipe? It's very simple and is best if you can make it a day ahead of serving. The fruit adds a lot of flavor after sitting awhile, but don't worry. You can drink it immediately, too!

Summer Sangria with Fre Wine

Recipe:
2 lemons, sliced into rings 
2 limes, sliced into rings
6 strawberries, sliced
1.2 cup blueberries
1/2 bottle Fre Brut
1/2 bottle Fre Chardonnay
2 tsp grenadine
1/2 cup club soda

Instructions:
Slice fruit and put into desired container. This can be a pitcher, or a big bowl so people can ladle out some fruit with their drink. Pour wines, grenadine and club soda over fruit and chill, overnight if possible.

Did you know you should gently roll citrus before you slice it? Makes the juices come out more and you want all those yummy juices for this sangria! This recipe can easily be doubled, with the full bottle of both wines if you're serving it for a group.

I like the Fre wines because they're actual wine with the alcohol removed. Not a sticky sweet grape juice. The de-alcoholization process leaves less than 0.5% of alcohol, making it perfect for those who can't or choose to not drink alcohol. Another added benefit is half the calories of traditional wine. Win!
