Happy Friday friends! What better way to kick off the weekend then with a deliciously beautiful cocktail? I love sangrias. The combined flavours of red wine, assorted berries and citrus fruits is just absolutely tantalizing. I admit that I am no cocktail connoisseur, but from time to time, I’ve successfully managed to prepare a few crowd-pleasing cocktails by throwing a few unexpected ingredients together.
This DIY Campari cocktail was inspired by my adoration for sangrias. I used the slight bitterness of Campari and blood oranges as my base (similar to red wine) and added a few of my favourite things.
