Tricolor Berry Wine for Snazzy Boozin’ on Game Day
If you’re a fan of white wine sangria, this is the drink for you! It’s colorful, a tad sweet (which will depend mostly on what wine you choose), and awesome served cold. With spring upon us as we kick of March Madness, this is the perfect cocktail hour drink to serve up as nighttime hoops get going on the ol’ boob tube!
