Falling for Sangria

by James Stevenson

Super excited to partner with Thrive Market during the launch of their new clean wine program. Y’all know I love cocktails but have a very sweet spot for wine and if I get the chance to combine the two I always take it and share the love. Beyond just the wine I really love Thrive Market, if you aren’t familiar with the company, they are an online marketplace that is designed to make healthy living easy and affordable for everyone.

I love it because you can NOW get wine delivered to your door that has been:

  1. Made from organic, biodynamic or sustainably farmed grapes
  2. Sourced from small and mid-sized producers
  3. No added sugar and minimal filtration during the winemaking process
  4. Priced with bottles starting as low as $12/bottle for a full case or $13/bottle for a six pack”

“What could be better? Using my special link, Thrive Market is giving you an EXTRA 25% off your first purchase PLUS a free 30-day trial. That’s 25% off the already low prices that Thrive Market offers, maxed at $20 off. thrivemarket.com/beautifulbooze

Then you can order all the wine, and make this Falling for Sangria recipe.
