During Covid-19, I’ve created some themed celebrations as if we were traveling. My husband’s birthday was no different. I created a trip to Cabo and my husband even wore a sombrero during some FaceTime calls to family. I wore my dress with a chili print. This homemade sangria recipe using fresh squeezed orange juice was a pleasant surprise to my husband and he thoroughly enjoyed it. He hadn’t had any in decades. It was something we often ordered when we dating in the late 70s. I hope you enjoy it as well.
