Dog Days of Summer + Easy Sangria Recipe

Ahh... the Dog Days of Summer have arrived... Literally.

One of my favorite things about summer is spending Sunday's evenings on my deck with good friends and good drinks.  We had a puppy play date last night.  All the pups were racing around the backyard except for these two.  They rather have their photo taken by the talented T. Doan.

My favorite summer drink is Sangria. I concocted a new version last night.  Here is the recipe for both the Unloaded and Loaded version:

Summer Sangria

1 cup raspberries
1 mango cut in to bite size pieces

2 Liters Ginger Ale

750 ml white wine
1/2- 1 Liter Ginger Ale (pour to preference)

Mix, chill for at least one hour to blend fruit flavors, serve over ice.  Delicious!  Strawberries and peaches would be a yummy summer mix to add also!
