Hello Spring! Tropical White Sangria

Tropical White Sangri

Today has been the most beautiful day in Boston! It feels like spring has finally sprung (it took long enough). To celebrate this wonderful weather, I figured I should make a light and refreshing tropical drink! And since it’s the weekend, it has to contain booze. Luckily, we had some fresh mangoes which inspired my tropical theme. This turned out so refreshing and delicious and because we used sweet wine and fruit, we were able to omit a lot of the added sugar found in most sangrias! I hope you enjoy!
