Rosé Skinny Sangria Bar

The Skinny Confidential and Rosé Sangria.
In my experience, Sangria has always been meh.

( ‘Meh’ is my new word, by the way. Definition: Indifference; to be used when one simply does not care. A: What do you want for dinner? B: Meh. )

But honestly, it’s never really done it for me.

I mean, ya there’s fruit ( love ) & wine ( double love ), but I feel like it typically contains way too much sugar, unnecessary alcohol(s) AKA liqueur, & the wrong wine ( no one wants Merlot in summer— just saying ).

SO.

What’s a girl to do?

Make her own skinny Rosé Sangria, naturally.

Presenting…skinny summer sangria:

Rosé is summer water.

It’s light, dry, & crisp-ish.

P.S. don’t confuse Rosé with white Zinfandel— they’re completely different.

Just trust me & give Rosé a try. Just PLEASE. One try; you won’t be disappointed because it’s literally insane. ESP Whispering Angel ( << this isn’t a sponsored post, I just really like WA Rosé ).

Anyway. Back to the skinny Sangria.

Shocker, but I kind of winged it. First I started off with the ingreds:

And then I incorporated my new patio bar.

Yes.

I have an inside bar cart and outside bar cart. Although this may sound somewhat alarming, it’s not because the cute carts can be used for parties/entertaining/vanities ( not just for alcohol ).

Side note on the bar’s design: I bought this Target bar cart ( << which is on sale!! ) & had it hand painted to match my patio’s aesthetic ( if you’re interested in a similar bar cart, e-mail me at Lauryn@TheSkinnyConfidential.com & I’ll hook you up with the painter ).

Diet and fitness and health.

Ok, so first off, I filled a Mason Jar pitcher with tons of ice ( like, TONS of ice ).

Then I added two bottles of Rosé, 1 bottle of Perrier, & a little bit of Lemon Love Suja ( if you don’t have LL Suja, add fresh lemonade, sparingly ).

Again, I’m totally not a measuring cup kind of girl, so bear with me.

After adding the liquid I threw in my favorite berries ( raspberries & boysenberries ), Meyer lemon wedges ( DER! ), a couple apple slices, a handful of chopped mint & CHIA SEEDS ( yessss, chia seeds AKA one of the healthiest foods on the planet— they’re full of protein & benefits…& oh-so-good! ) AND then…I kind of churred the mixture ( like butter circa 1800 ) with a wooden stick.

MMMhhmmm.

Soooo delicious & literally the perfect summer cocktail because who the doesn’t love a Rosé Sangria bar?

If you’re not a fan, you’re totally killing my summer vibe.

Cheers!

‘Tis the season of weddings.

But really though.

I feel like these last couple months have had a total wedding theme!!

This weekend I went to a wedding with my other boyfriend ( kidding! ) AKA my bestie, Steve— see:

And it got me thinking: is it weird I haven’t planned one.damn.thing for my own wedding?

Yikes.

I mean, let’s face it: if I was a Barbie, I’d be Procrastinator Barbie. ESP when it has to do with wedding planning.

Honestly, I just want to enjoy “being.”

Being happy.

Being in love.

Being engaged.

But actually ENJOY our engagement. Really savor it. Ya know?

Who says you have to rush right into wedding planning anyway?!

Anyone with me? If you’re married or engaged, what’s your take? Tell, tell.
