Happy February! I’ve teamed up with a few other bloggers for a Galentines Day Series. We’ll be bringing you ideas for a DIY project, special drinks to serve, what to wear and how to feel as beautiful as possible for your Galentine’s Day plans this year. The first post comes from Mila with Hangry Woman. She has quite the array of easy to follow recipes, which is something I need. I mean, how good does this Garlic Parmesan Creamed Spinach and Pan Roasted Chicken look?? Definitely adding this to my “to cook” list.
I don’t know about y’all but my girls are my rock. They’re my hype crew, they gas me up, they’re always ready to respond to my texts and tweets with a GIF, and I don’t know how I’d ever get by without them. More than anyone else, they support my goals and dreams, and pick me up even before I need it.
I love the idea of celebrating Galentine’s day. I first saw it on Parks and Recreation, and decided not to look back. I haven’t been able to celebrate Galentine’s Day every year, but this year, I made something special to share with my gals. Every single one of us loves wine, so what better way to celebrate than to mix up some wine, and boozy fruit in a cute mason jar for all.
It was a joy.
This recipe threw me a twist though! I’m diabetic, so I often have to watch what I drink to make sure that I don’t go overboard. Another friend of mine is on Keto, and another working out really hard, so I didn’t want to derail any of our diet plans to badly.
This Galentine’s Day White Wine Sangria is the best, because not only does it use the best fruits, like peaches, pineapples, strawberries and oranges, it uses an amazing mixer called “Be Mixed” that gives it an even more amazing ginger lime taste!
I also love Be Mixed because it’s a low-carb, no sugar mixer with no crazy aftertaste. The founders wanted to be sure that people could have more fun with their drinks than just sipping on vodka soda, and I think they did an amazing job. Be Mixed comes in a few great flavors, and they can boast that their product is all-natural, so you really can feel guilt free.
I loved pairing the mixers with my sangria, but they also make a beautiful gift for my favorite women! Check out the recipe down below, and let me know what your favorite Galentine’s Day finds are!
1 bottle of dry white wine
2 bottles of 4 oz, Be Mixed Ginger Lime Cocktail mixer
