Happy National Pink Day, folks! Did you know June 23 is the day that celebrates this beloved color around the U.S.? If you didn’t, you do now, and you should celebrate the fact that you learned something new! 

Below is a recipe of the Pink Party Sangria, a lovely little summer drink that goes well with all your summer gatherings, courtesy of LiDestri pink limoncello. Did you know this is the only pink limoncello in the world? See, even more reasons to celebrate!

By the way, LiDestri makes a pretty great limoncello, and this is coming from someone who’s married to an Italian who won’t accept anything less than the highest level of quality for such a classic Italian beverage. 

The taste is spectacular, and the color is perfect for a simple girls night or a fancy bridal shower. The pink limoncello also comes in single serving bottles, and these adorable little bottles make great party favors for any get together. 

You can get LiDestri pink limoncello in most beverage shops in Georgia or on their website
