Inspiration Mondays: Good Times with great food and loving Family!

This past Saturday I had an inside bbq(due to the annoying continuous rain drizzle). It was filled with great food(almost had to break up a fight over the AMAZING banana pudding!!! :), my loving family and friends, and international line dances(see picture below-my apologies for the fuzzy cellphone photography, lol...). I perfected my now famous Sangria(a la Christian!).
Sangria Recipe: A dash of Peach Schnapps
                            White Wine(your choice)
                            A dash of sweetener(I used white sugar)
                            Freshly juiced fruit using a Juicer(I used Jack LaLanne's Power Juicer)-watermelon, pineapple, blueberries, and strawberries
**Tip: You only need one part juice to four parts wine.
**Mix all to taste and ENJOY!

Mojito Recipe: White Rum(your choice)
                           Brown Sugar
                           Hierba Buena or Fresh Mint
                           Club Soda
**Mash the mint, brown sugar, and slices of lime together using a mortar and pestle. Add one part rum and one part Club Soda into a cup, add mint mixture and shake! Add more of anything to taste**
We danced the night away to the Cha Cha Slide, Danza Kuduro, and Ai Se Eu Te Pego, and The Wobble. These all can be found easily by searching YouTube. I hope your weekend was just as rewarding and eventful. Have a great week!
"Cintura Sola, Media vuelta...."-Danza Kuduro(Andrea, my Spanish exchange student, and I)
