Strawberry Sangria at Mom's Night Out

I hosted "Mom's Night Out" at my house last Thursday.  

Ellen helped me make brownies.  


Not just any brownies, but Barefoot Contessa brownies.  Let's just say they are called "outrageous" for a reason.  :)


For drinks, I made a summer strawberry sangria, inspired by this recipe.


Here's what your need to make and to enjoy this summer cocktail:

1 750 mL bottle of pinot grigio
1/2 cup strawberry liquor
1/4 cup sugar

Mix everything together until sugar is dissolved.  Chill for 1 - 4 hours.  Serve over ice with a squeeze of lime in each glass.  Makes 5 servings.  (I doubled this recipe.) 


Cheers!
