So long as the sun is still shining and the weather's still warm it's sangria season!
Lucky for you, style icon and hostess extraordinaire Aerin Lauder has just the recipe to put a fruity, delicious pep in your end-of-summer step.
Add two types of fresh fruit to a bottle of light, fruity white wine.
Whatever fresh fruit you have in the fridge is perfect - sliced strawberries, cut melon, orange slices, raspberries or blackberries.
Add a splash of cognac if you have it.
Throw in a clove or two.
Depending on your preference, add between a dash or a teaspoon or two of sugar.
Put it in the fridge for at least and hour and serve over ice.
And but of course, don't forget - presentation is everything. So grab yourself a pretty pitcher, some cheerful cocktail napkins and enjoy!
