Mixed Berry Lemonade Sparkling Sangria

It’s not everyday I get sent a couple of bottles of sparkling bubbly, and am asked to just enjoy it.

But that’s exactly what happened when Mionetto Prosecco arrived at my door here in balmy Texas. (I SAY balmy, to keep my spirits up. Truth is, it’s hot. Muggy, and scorching hot, or raining in apocalyptic downpours.  Balmy sounds nicer.)

Just ENJOY it, I was told.  Sip it.  Hang out in the backyard and relax.  Let us know if you like it. Share it.

Just ENJOY it.

Well, enjoy it I did.

Mionetto Prosecco is like drinking in a little everyday celebration. Have you tried it?  You should! Mionetto is an  internationally recognized leader in fine sparkling wines from northeast Italy, since 1887. 1887?  That’s a long time!  More importantly… It’s sparkly. It’s light and crisp and fun.  It’s perfect for a backyard picnic, or equally perfect for a romantic, sophisticated dinner in.  Versatile, refreshing, seriously, a little celebration.

You get to decide what to celebrate.  Surviving the day? Finding the most fab pair of stilettos that are comfortable AND on sale?  Making it through the week without throat punching that guy who keeps parking in front of YOUR house instead of his own? (Okay, maybe that’s just me.) Whatever the reason – celebrate!  Life is short so make it as pleasurable as possible.

Looking for a little more pleasure?
