This recipe includes beet juice! Yes, beets! I am a huge beet lover! You can press your own beets, or buy fresh beet juice (much easier).

The other ingredients (red wine, apple cider, bourban) just come together to make the BEST sangria!

Serve in a pitcher, or a bowl with a ladle.

Ps. You can leave out the beets (but it won’t be quite the same, but still very good).

3 SPRING Party Planning Tips

Plan and prepare. Plan a simple meal, making it potluck, so that everyone contributes, and get as much prep work done ahead of time as possible. Don’t forget to delegate so you don’t have to do it all!

Set the table (or buffet area) the day before, including the “drink station.” Use the colors of the season by bringing fresh spring pots and plants to the entertaining area.

Create a signature drink. Think of one simple drink, with a bit of SPRING bling (fruity, healthy, spicy, festive). Bring out the punch bowl and make it easy for guests to help themselves. Have a drink ready to hand to your guests as they walk through the front door!
