Welcome back! I went on hiatus for a bit. But how about a delicious sangria to say I miss you and I'm glad you're back. Everywhere asked me if I'd like to collaborate with Hansen's natural soda. Living a few blocks away from a Trader Joe's certainly aided in my decision to say "but of course!" We're not big soda drinkers but Hansen's has been a treat in our house since we moved to California, especially during the summer months. And with no caffeine, no preservatives and real cane sugar, I let my son pick out his favorite flavors. I, on the other hand, like to add a little twist to my Hansen's. This delicious drink is super easy to make. I used this simple recipe but added a 1/2 cup of pitted cherries and substituted the ginger ale or club soda with Hansen's Raspberry soda. Now if I would have had this drink during my turbulent flight from LA to NYC, life would have been grand.
