I love this time of year! The sunny afternoons and slightly chilly evenings make it so nice to be outside. This light and delicious recipe for Indian Summer Sangria is perfect while relaxing on the deck. This recipe is really amazing because of the strawberry and peach puree that serves as a base for the cocktail. It’s fruity and refreshing without being too sweet. It’s perfect to enjoy while you are soaking up the last days at the pool or with a fun meal like Paella!
