Every time Megan comes to Santa Barbara we make it a point to go to the Farmers Market. It’s not hard to be inspired amidst the aisles of brightly colored produce. The farmers who work the stands create beautiful displays of their harvest.
Recently, strolling through the market, we noticed the perfect rows of lettuce and immediately saw the makings of a centerpiece.
It is so easy to see the colors of the season’s produce translate into the prints and patterns for our table linens.
Pistachio Table captures the fresh, vibrant, and spirited colors of Farmers Markets everywhere.
This sangria is perfect for your 4th of July celebration! It’s sweet, delicious, and it serves a crowd.
I serve it cold and add all the spices you’d put in an apple pie.
Its ruby hue turns the floating islands of fruit the prettiest color.
I always use Southern Comfort instead of the customary brandy or rum because it comes with it’s own sweet and spiced flavor.
1 Bottle Red Wine
1/4 Cup Triple Sec
1/2 Cup Southern Comfort Whiskey
1/4 Cup Dark Brown Sugar
2 Cups Citrus Juice (Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon)
2 Cinnamon Sticks
1 Star Anise
1 Vanilla Bean, split
10 Cloves, whole
1 Orange, sliced
1 Lemon, sliced
Combine ingredients, except sliced citrus, in a large pitcher and stir. Refrigerate overnight for the best flavor. Add the sliced citrus just before serving. Enjoy!
