Some of us have met face to face, and some remain on each other’s bucket lists.

To celebrate friendship with women who inspire, be it your mother, your sister, or neighbor, make a pitcher of white sangria to enjoy!

This white sangria recipe is perfect for an evening with friends.

Like most people who enjoy wine, there’s a preference. 

Some prefer a dry red wine.

Others a sweet and fruity wine.
