Cocktails and Mocktails for May Celebrations
Showers and celebrations with friends abound this time of year. Show us your healthy, colorful drink concoctions for festivities like bridal showers and graduation celebrations.

I have been making this sangria for over 40 years. Even today, except for swapping the white wine with Prosecco, it's the same recipe and I would not change a thing.

For those of you lucky enough to have watched The Frugal Gourmet, you might remember this recipe. Could make this in my sleep.

The beauty is it can be a mocktail or a cocktail. The simple swap of a good white grape juice, orange syrup and club soda along with the fruits, make this the perfect non-alcoholic drink to cool you down in the middle of the summer.
For those of you who want a light, easy and fruity drink, this is for you.

White Sangria
inspiration from Jeff Smith (the Frugal Gourmet)

* 1 bottle Prosecco or 3 cups white grape juice & 1 cup club soda
* 1 tablespoon sugar
* 1/2 cup orange juice
* 1/4 cup triple sec (or orange syrup)
* 1 tablespoon brandy
* 1/2 orange, sliced
* 1/2 lime and lemon, sliced
* Handful grapes, optional

Mix all ingredients in a large pitcher and refrigerate for minimum 2 hours for optimal flavor.
