Sangria: Monday Night Martha
Welcome Spring. Pick a reason: the Arizona Diamondbacks' home opener, consumption of too many chocolate eggs, a beautiful 78 degree day here in the Valley. Any reason will do to make Sangria.
You could also try peach, berries, pineapple, or melon. Or, honey in place of granulated sugar. That is the beauty of sangria, it's pretty happy to adapt to whatever you want.
We were going to tackle a complicated cake for Monday Night Martha this week, but after sipping a few glasses of sangria we thought better of it. What's the rush? Why not live in the moment and just eat some more chocolate eggs? Maybe that's what separates us from the mythical multi-tasking Martha, but that's an accusation we can live with.
