Let’s kick summer off with a fresh twist on one of my favourite cocktails with this Minty Cucumber Lime Sangria!
I love to entertain in the summer and create fun cocktails for when we have company over. This sangria hits all the right notes as it’s easy to make for a party or group and has a ton of fresh flavours.
It’s fun to mix together different fruit combinations (and in this case vegetables) to come up with new and fresh sangria flavours.
It’s such an EASY cocktail to make for the summer months, especially when you’re entertaining and it would also be lovely for a wedding shower!
The cucumber and mint adds a refreshing twist for a summertime sangria, and the lime brightens up the entire drink.
