Pink Chia Sangria

Try this refreshing summer drink using our Patchwork Pink wine and those crazy little chia seeds


1 bottle of wine
2 liters of ginger ale
1 honeydew melon, 1-1/2″ chunks
1 cucumber, sliced, quartered
8 oz. chia seed beverage
salt

Cut melon into chunks and place in freezer-safe bowl to freeze ahead. Mix wine and and ginger ale equal parts in pitcher, cover and chill. Cut cucumber and set aside. Prepare individual glasses (16-20 oz.) by wetting rim and dipping in salt. Add 2-4 melon chunks and 6-8 cucumber pieces to each glass. Pour wine mixture into glass to fill. Top with 1 tablespoon of chia seed beverage (not kombacha, yuk…we like MammaChia® Rasberry Passion.) A straw helps to to suck the seeds that settle to the bottom!

Call me “old-fashioned”…

…but I prefer to read from top to bottom. More specifically, I prefer to start at the beginning of the story and not the end. Therefore my brain has rejected the concept of blogging and its end-at-the-top format. But it is 2019 and my old-fashioned preferences are in the cyber minority. Today I venture into WordPress to redesign what I considered perfectly good html pages into something they call mobile-friendly. Again another battle lost. Maybe I can learn how to salvage 7 years of online journaling designed the old-fashioned way and make them part of the new site. But for now I just need to get a homepage up!
