Sunshine, is that you? Oh, how I've missed you so. To celebrate your long awaited arrival (see: six long painful months), I've scoured the best food and booze blogs this fine Internet has to offer, hand-picking the brightest, most delicious sangria recipes worthy of your springtime rays.

And get this, I didn't stop there. Since I plan on basking in your glorious presence during every happy hour and boozy brunch session from now until October, I knew that just some run-of-the-mill jug wine wouldn't do. That's why I hand-selected my favorite wines for every red, white, and blush occasion. Oh, and in true budget-friendly fashion, each wine retails for less than $20 a bottle.

So today, I raise my glass of sangria to you, dear sunshine, offering you a very warm welcome home.
