Grapefruit Sangria

Grapefruit Sangria

This was a refreshingly delicious drink that I adapted from Will Cook for Smiles! It called for a bottle of White Zin but who could resist Pink Moscato?!?! #notme

I made this for the 4th of July brunch and boy am I glad I didn't invite anyone over! Was almost upset when I saw the hubs sipping on some but given the amount he had I figured I was safe.

Here's the recipe, you won't be disappointed.

Oh Nuts!

Normally I'm OK with my natural aversion to all things nuts because of my allergy to them, but then there are days like today, National Toffee Day, when I realize that there are some things that might be worth pulling out the EpiPen for! I mean look at all this yummy deliciousness that I can't have {sad face}.

I suppose I could just make it without the nuts...but wouldn't it just be caramel then? Not that I mind just caramel but toffee it would not be.
