    Brooklyn SangriaIs there any better way to spend your hump day than sipping on sweet wine? I don’t think so! The Brooklyn Marriott has summertime fun written all over it. The hotel’s bar, which is conveniently named The Bar, has spectacular views of the Brooklyn Bridge, which will make your relaxing Wednesday night even better. What do we recommend trying? The Brooklyn Sangria. Perfect for summer night drinks, this concoction will have you lusting until next week’s Wine Wednesday.

    If you can’t make it to Brooklyn to have the bartender pour a refreshing glass for you, switch roles and become the bartender yourself. Check out their delicious sangria recipe below!
