Self-serve – if it can work at fast food places it can work at home. OK, perhaps a slightly more sophisticated version, but still…
Entertaining brings enough anxiety for many (when to put in the chicken, how to time the mashed potatoes, is there enough garlic bread) and the drink department doesn’t have to be part of the craziness. This is a simple, make-ahead white wine sangria that you finish at the last minute and then let your guests serve themselves. There’s no bad here.
So delicious and beautiful. Let your inner bargain hunter come out because this is NOT the time to use expensive wine – it would be a huge waste. Just sayin…
