So naturally, right before I sat down to write this drink post, I went to grab my glass of wine that I had just poured and taken one sip out of; and what did I do? Of course spilled it! ALL.OVER everything that is important in life (aka my iPhone and my laptop case). Thankfully the laptop wasn’t harmed but I was really freaking out that my iPhone was. Luckily I had a case on that too and the screen is pretty water repellant so all was good..except for that now empty glass of wine! Definitely fixed that. Anyway – so speaking of wines, I’m REALLY into sauvignon blanc’s because of their grapefruit taste. I adore grapefruit but because of the medication I take, I cannot ever have grapefruit because it has some weird interaction with the medicine and can ruin my kidneys (gasp!). So I guess turning to wine isn’t a horrible thing, but anyway – my point is, since Jason knows how much I adore grapefruit and white wine, he picked out a sauvignon blanc for me recently and it is like my favorite wine brand ever now.

Let’s ignore the fact that the wine brand sounds like a stripper (I honestly don’t know why I associate it with a stripper name) but have you ever tried Kim Crawford’s sauvignon blanc? An ice cold glass of it is so refreshing in the evenings. I rarely drink and now I’m drinking a glass every evening or every other evening. It’s that good!

But, we can’t ever forget my all-time favorite, and the one we had an insane amount of at our wedding: Prosecco. My first true love.

Given that it is blood orange season (it’s running close to the end of it, I think), and the fact that I love brunch drinks, I thought it’d be fun to make a blood orange bellini! It’s a fun drink to have with some girlfriends and it’s also really refreshing to have a glass of this during a Sunday brunch at home. It’s really easy to make and delicious! I love blood oranges. They’re stunning in color and have so much depth of flavor.

What do you think of my little gif (animated movie) above? Isn’t it fun?! I didn’t even intend on making one but that morning, Jason was on FaceTime with his parents and I needed a pouring shot so I set up my tripod and remote control and went to town on snapping multiple photos in a row. When I was culling through my photos on the computer, it worked out that they would be awesome sequential shots for a gif movie! Yay :)
