Be sure to also check out the blog feature on former Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock’s blog.  One of Kara's delicious recipes for Sangra Pops is seen below.  Photos by the amazingly talented Alyssa Turner Photography.  Hope you enjoy!

Tropical Sangria Pops

{ Makes 4 pops }

Ingredients: 

½ cup raw coconut water

¾ cup Riesling (opt for organic if possible)

1 pineapple

1 mango

1 papaya

Special equipment: 

Popsicle molds & sticks

Mini heart-shaped cookie cutter

Directions:

  1. Slice up the tropical fruit in desired thickness for mini heart cut outs.  Then using a mini heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out hearts using each of the three fruits.
  2. Stir together the coconut water and Riesling.
  3. Pour into popsicle molds.
  4. Make sure to leave enough room to add the heart-shaped fruit since the liquid will rise.
  5. Add in your tropical fruit hearts.
  6. Place in the freezer and freeze overnight.
  7. To remove pops, fill a bowl with warm water and set the molds in the bowl for about 20-30 seconds. The water should not cover the entire molds.
  8. Gently slide the pops out of the molds, and enjoy!

Sometimes the sweet simple things just take your breathe away.  That is how I feel about this simply lovely inspirational bridal shoot by Jenny McCann.  I didn't even realize that Jenny used film until I read the snippet in The Lovely Find blog.  Jenny is a true artist and I love her work.  I am so blessed to get to meet some of the most talented people in the industry.  A huge THANK YOU to the other amazing vendors that shared their time on this sweet shoot; hair and makeup ~ Emily Del Torro, Flowers ~ We + You, & Cake ~ Carrie Riefler.  Please click on their websites & let them know that Rita sent you:)  Recently published on THE LOVELY FIND.
