Sangria: A Sip of Summer

As temperatures continue to rise and the sun spends more time showing its face, my thoughts oftentimes touch on sangria, and how nice it would be to have a glass (or pitcher) in front of me.

Just this week we got in a brand new sangria pitcher, straight from Spain. It’s made of ceramic and hand-painted in Valencia, and makes the perfect vessel for your wine and fruit concoctions. The best part? It holds 1.75 liters so you’ll have plenty of sangria handy for a balmy afternoon.
