“…she stopped paying close attention to his words and when at red lights, examined the rain drops spattering on the windshield so intently that she almost stared right through them. Each drop seemed stuck on the glass, until another drop landed on it and they rolled down the window together, ending in a climactic splash.”


Sara: English major/Gender and Sexuality Studies minor, working at a nonprofit that gets young women ready for and interested in running for office/maybe soon applying to grad school, writer, clarinetist.

I post and reblog: things I think are pretty, things that intrigue me, things I'm a fan of, and things I care about.

Common themes include: books, writing, movies, more books, cozy beds, breakfasts, Doctor Who, Sherlock, feminist issues, and occasional pieces of my life.




HOW TO MAKE DELICIOUS WHITE SANGRIA—OH MY GOD, IT IS TASTY
Get some citrus fruits. I thought 2 each of oranges, limes, and lemons seemed nice. Shave off some zest, maybe do it all fancy and striped.
Slap together some simple syrup. Seriously, it’s super simple. Ha. 1:1 ratio of sugar to water. Heat until the sugar is totally dissolved. DONE. I used 8 Tbsp. of each and then only used about half in the sangria. Infuse that shit with your citrus zest. YUM.
Slice the fruit! Ooh, pretty.
Pile the fruit!
Slosh on some of that simple syrup. Muddle a bit with spoon to smoosh that goodness together. Have a take no prisoners attitude and make this lady your stirring role model:
WINE WINE WINE. 
Add a splash of seltzer. I had maybe a cup left of this raspberry lime stuff. Whatever you think will taste good with citrus and white wine, you do you.
COMPLETE!
Don’t wait for it to steep and chill in the fridge, go ahead and have a celebratory cup with a few ice cubes. You deserve it. Then let the rest steep and chill in the fridge.
