coastal inspiration

Today marks the end of another working week and the start of April. Cool winds, dark skies and rain descended upon us this week, cementing autumn for another year.
Ella, Kate and I are going coastal this weekend with our fabulous friend Marc. It’s a somewhat belated birthday celebration we’ve been looking forward to since his actual birthday back in December.
White Sangria
2 large green apples
1/2 cup lime juice
2 x 750ml bottles Riesling
1/2 cup white rum
1/3 cup apple schnapps
1/4 cup icing sugar
3 cups seedless green grapes, halved
2 cups blueberries
3 cups sparkling mineral water

Peel and core apple and cut into thin wedges. Place in medium bowl with lime juice. Stand for 5 mins.
Place undrained apples with remaining ingredients into a large bowl and stir to combine.
Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.

We enjoyed a few glasses of this delicious concoction on a hot afternoon last year at Kate’s Hen’s Weekend.
Here’s to hoping the clouds open up a sky full of blue and rays of sunshine beam down upon us for our coastal weekend. Enjoy yours!
