Frozen Pink Sangria
Lightly sweet, fruity and bursting with color, this frozen cocktail is innately summery. The freezing technique is the same used to make granità, the traditional Italian ice.
Perfect for brunch or ladies (or gents!) who lunch, and anytime a sweltering day calls for something refreshing.Be sure to serve it in clear glasses to show off its rosy hue.
