I've got sunshine on a cloudy day

The weather is outside is terrible today in New England. It is cold and windy and rainy. Summer is months and months away and won't be here until after we get through endless snow storms and frigid temperatures. This is the worst of fall. This is where is begins.

To get through it, let's think about the good times. Sitting on the roof deck, slightly sunburned, the only wind is a summer breeze, hanging out with friends, and sipping on a cold glass of lemon sangria.

Lemon Sangria
  • 1 bottle dry white wine
  • 2 cups lemonade
  • 1/2 cup limoncello liqueur
  • 2 lemons, cut into wheels
  • 2 oranges cut into wheels
  • 1 bottle semisweet sparkling wine
  1. Combine the wine, lemonade, limoncello, lemons, and oranges in a large glass container and stir well.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for four hours.
  3. Serve over ice; fill glasses half way with the sangria mixture, then top with sparkling wine.
  4. Garnish with a lemon twist.


  1. Ha- I remember Allie's wicked bad sunburn! How I wish I was able to wear a tanktop right now!

  2. No kidding. To be able to even have a sunburn, no matter how much they suck.
