Cinco de Mayo weekend was such a blast. On Saturday, Frank and I had a long journey ahead of us. We started the day in Brooklyn, having brunch with some college friends who I love dearly. I had my first ever Bloody Mary! I wasn't too into it though. Maybe it's an acquired taste? Anyhow, after brunch we drove down to Philly for a party at my friend Kerry's apartment. (Hey, Kerry! Start a blog!) I made a pretty sweet sangria in this GIANT mason jar I found at Target. I searched for "Cinco de Mayo cocktails" and found this recipe. It's called "Easy Grapefruit Sangria" and, like the name implies, it seemed easy enough to make. I thought it might not taste that great because the ingredients didn't sound like they'd mix well. Also, it's not really a Mexican (read: appropriate for Cinco de Mayo) drink because the main ingredient is Riesling, which is German. Ha! It turned out incredible, though. I will definitely be making it many more times. The ingredients are Riesling, grapefruit juice, ginger ale, and fruit. I used two small plums, an apple, a green pair, and a red pear. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I also made a game called "Pin the marg on the lady!" which took forever. Lots of people played even though there was no prize. ;) Kerry said she was going to laminate the cardboard so we can play it at other parties. And yes, that is the red dress/dancing lady emoji. The only bad part of this weekend was that I lost my new favorite ring. I never lose things so I'm more mad about it than I should be. I might have to head back to Francesca's and buy another one. :(

  1. Whatever you're drinking in that large mason jar looks absolutely delicious! Although, I trust you because I took love sipping whiskey.
