thirsty thursday.. pomegranate sangria

 
please please excuse these photos!! it was a party after all :) i have the most beautiful pomegranate tree in my front yard and come this time of year i seek out recipes calling for pomegranates. so when i found this one here i knew i wanted to make it for pete's 50th b day party..


soo i don't like sangria.. truth be told i don't like wine.. but i knew some guests did.. namely sam.. he he she loves sangria!!


i served it in a drink dispenser and on the side had sliced oranges.. 


the over all consensus.. and i am quoting here.." the best sangria i've ever had.." "this is better than milo's"..{a local wine bar} so you can't take my word for it but take the guests world for it.. this sangria is delish!!! {my niece jessie is due to have another baby any day now and first thing she asked for when she is allowed is this sangria!!}
