I have never tried Sangria of any kind but this one looks so good that I may just add it to my list of must tries. I am not usually a fan of wine but I think all the berries in this drink would cut the taste of that for me and make it more bearable to drink.
Cinco de Mayo (May 5) is a day that celebrates the Mexican Army’s defeat of French forces at the Battle of Puebla, during the French occupation of Mexico (1862). As a surprise to some, it is not Mexico’s Independence Day! In the United States, we’ve adopted the day as a celebration of Mexican heritage – a chance to get together with friends and enjoy some of the traditions and delicious food and drink we’ve borrowed from our neighbors. While many people still mistake the origin of Cinco de Mayo, there’s absolutely no mistaking the sense of community and appreciation the day brings.
I got this recipe from Kraft as part of their Delicious Byte Blogging program.
