Christmasy Apple Cinnamon Sangria
Hey Y'all (yep still trying this out)!! It's almost Christmas! What are you bringing to your Aunt Edna's? Do you have a go-to dish that you concoct to bring to family parties? For me I bring one of two things, hoagie dip or my famous cinnamon apple sangria. This year it's sangria all the way!
And luckily for you I am sharing my recipe for you to shock and awe your fam with the best Christmasy- most festive cocktail ever!
What you need:
Sangria Pitcher or Jar
4 bottles of red wine (I prefer Cab)
A bag of apples
4 large oranges
A bag of lemons
A bag of limes
Orange or berry flavored seltzer (1 liter) OR White Claw if you want a little more booze
I wish I has an exact recipe but I don't. I just make it until it tastes good. This is why I am a better cook than baker! Basically you pour in the 4 bottles, add the seltzer and as much fruit as you want. Throw in a few cinnamon sticks and as much cinnamon as you like. Let it sit and chill overnight, this part is important. Do not put ice in it, put ice in the cups and pour!
Merry Christmas Babes!
I always get asked what I eat and how I stay fit while traveling for work all the time. I did a blog about this a few years ago but wanted to do an updated version as so many people responded to my stories about my travel nutrition.
When I travel for work it's usually only two days. So before I leave my house I make a shake to take on the road in the morning.
Last year I made the decision to get healthy again and work with my friend and trainer Kerven Germain. Kerven worked out with me twice a week and I worked out on my own the other days. Unfortunately, sometimes our busy schedules get in the way and leave us with minimal work out time. This was me over the holiday; stress, lack of time and travel left me with less than two days to work out, at least less than two days to feel motivated to. But one thing I did stay consistent with was my nutrition.
Last year I fell into a love affair with cucumber vodka. However, I really only drink it in the summertime. It is so refreshing!! So I played around a little bit with it and crafted my favorite summer cocktail.
