Summer Recipes: Andrea Correale’s End of Summer Sangria

Summer Means Sangria. At least to me it does. So I went to the ultimate source. Andrea Correale is the President and Founder of Elegant Affairs Caterers.  This means she is in charge of events for the most discerning (and affluent) palates including the likes of Mariah Carey, Russell Simmons, Jimmy Fallon, P. Diddy and the Donald. So, what do you say, make her gorgeous End of Summer Sangria, sit back, relax and make believe you’re sunning in Southampton.
