Sip & Snack - Port Sangria with Caramel & Cheese


While in Scottsdale a week ago my husband and I took in a desert sunset and ordered some port sangria on the patio of our hotel. While the above photo doesn't do the sunset any justice, it was the inspiration for this week's sip & snack that I was supposed to share yesterday. Why didn't I share it yesterday??? Well... let's just say I had a few too many cocktails with the girls celebrating a friends new left hand sparkler and I was a bad bad blogger. So my apologies for being a day late but hopefully you agree it's worth the wait...below is my version of the delicious port sangria that we enjoyed in warmer weather, but this time I paired it with an amazing dry cheese drizzled with vanilla caramel. Trust me, you want to try this...Cheers to the weekend!






ok ok, I know the caramel looks hardly appetizing, but try it & I am confident you will love it!
