Drink of the Week: Citrusy Champagne Sangria

Drinks 1 Comment by Nicole

I have an Oscar’s party every year because I secretly wish that I was up on that stage reading my acceptance speech. This year, one of my lovely guests make a cocktail with champagne which inspired me to find a lovely champagne infusion for this week’s drink of the week. When I stumbled upon this lovely concoction you can imagine my surprise to find something that not only includes champagne but could also be considered a sangria?! Am I dead? Is this heaven?!
