Mango Peach Sangria

So here we are ……… day three of record breaking temperatures …….. and the bad news is that it isn’t supposed to lessen for another 4 days….

yikes

I’ve determined that I must be acclimated to the extreme summertime heat here in Vegas – because as hot as it is (and yes, 116 is HOT), every place you go has air conditioning. Which is good, of course – but the flip side is that it is usually turned so low, that being inside for any extended amount of time requires a jacket or long sleeve shirt.

Or, going outside to warm up.

Which then necessitates going back inside to cool down.

It’s a vicious cycle, I know…….
