Lately I have been trying to make more creative cocktail stations for my parties so when I hosted a Mom's Night Out at my house last week I created this sweet Sangria Bar with a yummy selection of toppings for everyone to garnish their drinks. Key elements to this display are a fun drink dispenser {I got this one at West Elm. It's holds 1.4 gallons, has a nice silver stand, and most importantly, doesn't leak... many of the cheapie ones do!!}. Then I love my Simon Pearce martini glasses for displaying fruit with an elegant twist. Here I cut up oranges and apples and also displayed raspberries, blueberries and mint leaves. I crafted my own white wine sangria recipe and am sharing it below – it's so refreshing and really sweet! Cheers to summer nights and refreshing cocktails!!
