BIODYNAMIC + ADAPTOGENIC SANGRIA BLANCO
The perfect summer recipe, Sangria is a great way to bring your favorite flavors of the season into the mix. Just slice your fruits and throw them into a vessel with your favorite wine and adaptogens, and you have a special treat that we think goes best when shared with others (while socially distancing) on a sunny afternoon. Grab your favorite farmers market fruits or ones straight from the garden (or ask your friends to bring over their favorites) and mix them together for a rewarding and potent alchemical treat! ~ Read on to get the recipe for our favorite Sun Potion Sangria ~
