Whenever I entertain, aside from the standard beer and wine, I love to create a signature cocktail. And my go-to summer time cocktail for any gathering is Sangria.  Brimming with fresh fruit Sangria is a gorgeous addition to any table, can easily be prepared the night before, and is always a crowd pleaser.  Cheers!  Truly, MKR
