On my way to work the other day I was running extremely early and there just happens to be a Target right where I exit the freeway. Darn the luck! I zipped in and found a few things I actually needed and also picked up this months copy of Food  Network Magazine.

This June copy has some crazy good recipes and ideas to try out among them this little gem I found about Sangria Floats. What perfect drink for a hot summer day! These completely customizable bad boys are easy enough to make that you can have a family/friends barbeque serve these and not have to slave in the kitchen missing all the fun of having guests over. I hope you enjoy as much as I did sipping one of these while my kids played in the pool. I mean it did hit about 105* this weekend y’all; It’s officially summer in Texas!

Sangria Floats 1

What You Will Need:

Bottle of your favorite Sangria

Container of Sherbet (Flavors vary, I used Pineapple because pineapple is my favorite)

Fruit for Garnish

What to Do:

For best results chill glass before hand for at least 3o minutes in the freezer.

Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out sherbet in ball formation. Fill glass with anywhere from three to four scoops depending on the size of your glass. Slowly pour over the Sangria over the Sherbet until glass if full.

Garnish with fruit if desired, and enjoy!
