Wine Club's Sangria Night

Our friend Melissa hates to have any foreign objects corrupting her wine, so it's only natural she ended up hosting our wine club's first Sangria night. We decided to have a delayed Cinco de Mayo celebration with sangria and Mexican food while watching Gone Girl. Deception + Wine + burritos = perfect ladies' night!

Melissa first greeted us with glasses of white wine with lemon slices and mint leaves, a refreshing start to the evening. We agreed that if you choose to do this, let the mixture sit for about an hour and muddle the mint a little bit for maximum flavor.

Her daughter is our honorary Wine Club member...she joined us with a wine glass of water and we even taught her "Cheers!"

We dined on our three favorite foods: cheese dip, salsa and guacamole.

And I cuddled with my favorite little lady!

But things got REALLY exciting when we tried Cup of Jo's recipe for rose sangria, which was absolutely delicious. I can't wait to serve this up at future summer gatherings! Melissa's sweet husband went and picked up food from Burrito Perdido for us and that was equally scrumptious.

These are the faces of people who really love Chambord in their sangria.
