White Citrus Sangria

Because it's Saturday...


Because it's the month that gives us Spring...

Because the monthly budget just rolled over (hello new camera lens and Ulta)... 


Because it's Dr. Seuss' birthday (learning to read would have been a drag without him)...

Because wine and fruit are a marriage made in heaven...

Make these.


Happy Birthday Jillian!!  This pitcher has your name on it.
