Celebrate with Callie Collection Red Blend
Rhonda and I have known each other for over 20 years and she’s come to mean everything to me. We have been there for each other through some of the hardest times in our lives – through breakups, emotional breakdowns, and a whole lot of hangovers. It’s an honor to celebrate the most important day of Rhonda’s life with her and her soon to be husband by creating my signature Sangria with Callie Collection Red Blend wine.
“Celebration to do List”
First on my list of things to do was to purchase the Callie Wine Collection. I chose the Red blend to help celebrate the nuptials of my best friend Rhonda and her soon to be husband Mitch because of its deep rich ruby color with subtle hints of blackberries, strawberries, and caramel with hints of vanilla. The Callie Collection Red Blend wine to feature the twist-off cork which makes easy to work with when it’s just girls.
Pre-wedding Fun with Callie Collection
I wanted to prepare my special sangria recipe for the pre-wedding fun the girls while we were getting our makeup and hair done for the ceremony. Sangria isn’t your average beverage it is simple, refreshing and easily tailored to your palate – All you will need is fresh fruit, Callie Collection Red blend wine, brandy, and pineapple juice. The Callie Collection wine tends to mesh will with sangria because of the blend of blackberries, ripe strawberry, sweet caramel, and spicy vanilla flavors round out the wine which is exactly what you want for a delicious fruity sangria.
We have to make time for those special moments
As we get older, and life gets faster and the time we once had for our friends, seems to diminish therefore celebrating my best friend upcoming nuptials meant the world to me. You might not notice it at first, but soon your coffee dates are being replaced by school meetings. Your carefree mornings are busy and rushed, and the phone calls you used to make daily to chat with your best friend are slowly turning into every other week (or month!) catch up calls.
Cherish those moments
We cherish the moments we have together and try to not take them for granted because life is too short. Taking time to cultivate a true friendship based on mutual good will and respect will give you profound insight into your behavior and best interest. Show your friends how much you care about them whether it’s an impromptu meet up, celebrating a promotion or in this case, my best friend was getting married.
My job as BFF was to come up with an amazing beverage of my choice to help settle our nerves the day of the wedding! We needed a great wine to help us stop time and cherish these moments.
