Somehow, when Meg, Susannah, Madison and I were talking about doing Easter/springtime drinks, I knew I was going to make sangria.

I’m a sucker for sangria… and let me go ahead and warn you: expect more sangria deliciousness from me in the coming months. It’s so much fun! And you can vary it up! And you can use SO MANY DIFFERENT FRUITS!

So today? Today, we’re using raspberries and mangos combined with lime AND mint.

What could be bad about that?

Turns out, it could be bad news if you’re allergic to mango.

At the ripe young age of 26, I discovered my pineapple allergy. Already very allergic to banana, I freaked out. Since then, I’ve avoided most tropical fruits, though I would love to learn that my pineapple allergy has gone away.

It hasn’t. And it’s not worth running the risk of an anaphylactic shock.

Wamp, wamp.

But hey, I can still enjoy pineapple if it’s on pizza because the enzymes change as it cooks! (Other weird allergy sufferers, rejoice! Maybe it’s the same for you, too?)

Needless to say, I’ve been avoiding tropical fruits since we discovered my pineapple allergy. Food allergies aren’t any fun, y’all, and they continually freak me out because mine seem to be getting worse with age.

But last week? We ended up with a mango to make salsa with that never made it into a dish because I was a wimp…

I didn’t want this mango to go to waste.

So on Friday, I decided to be brave.

Read: By “be brave,” I mean “Chop up the mango and talk about your anxiety handling said mango and then consider your allergy while drinking and wondering if the tightness in your chest is due to the anxiety or if it’s the allergy.”

Based on how Friday went, I don’t *think* I’m allergic to mango… even though I experienced anxiety over trying this drink after it was made. –> Food blogger problems, that right there. You’re welcome/I’m sorry/Please don’t scold me for giving this a go because YOU NEVER KNOW UNTIL YOU TRY, and my allergist skin test was negative for a mango allergy last time…

HOORAY!

And this sangria is utterly DELICIOUS. (As if this combination of flavors could be bad.)

Springtime is gonna be ALL about the fresh mint from my garden this year, and pairing it with mango, raspberry and lime was a smart move. This sangria is super refreshing, slightly sweet and utterly perfect for a crowd.
