First Day of Summer Sangria, and Happy Birthday Ben!

Happy first day of summer, and happy birthday to my main squeeze!

Recently Ben and I went to Ponysaurus and Ben fell in love with this beer. It’s a weissbier with banana and clove flavors in it… how different! I admit I was skeptical, but I tried it and loved it too.

For Ben’s birthday (which is actually tomorrow, but we decided to celebrate early), I came across a banana flavored rum at ABC and decided to add a twist to the brew he loves so much. White sangria with pineapple, mango, and banana rum! Plus a touch of leftover Riesling from our weekend getaway to Williamston 🙂

Serve with a variety of cheese, spreads, sliced meat and crackers! These were just things I already had around… you may recognize the pesto– yep, still good.
