June is Pride Month. That means celebrating past and present LGBTQIA+ history. Even if you’re self-isolating or acclimating to new social norms as restrictions lax, you won’t want to opt-out of this month’s festive sensibility.

No matter how you’ve chosen to honor Pride this year, this sweet, rainbow sangria is a tasty and colorful way to celebrate.

So let’s get started! First, combine the pinot grigio, honey, lime juice and triple sec in a pitcher. Be sure to stir it until it combines.

To ensure the flavors blend, try refrigerating the drink for 15 minutes before enjoying.

Sangria dates as far back as at least 1,100 B.C. Phoenicians made the wine punch using planted vines, sugar and spices. However, the drink disappeared for several hundred years from 700 to 1492 when the Moors occupied the country. But the cocktail didn’t become popular in the U.S. until the 1964 World’s Fair. Spain sponsored a pavilion with the drink and Americans have been hooked since.

  • Disney World attraction malfunctions in viral video, leads to hilarious memes

    Just a few days before Disney World enters its phased reopening on July 11, one particular attraction at the theme park seems to have gone rogue.On July 8, CinemaBlend reported that the park had conducted a test of its Carousel of Progress attraction at Tomorrowland.where its main animatronic character John recently appeared to spaz out on stage.An 18-second clip of that moment surfaced on Twitter, where it promptly led to some hysterical meme.“John clearly hasn’t been rehearsing during his vacation time,” the Magic Blitz Podcast joked on the social media platform.Several users took the opportunity to set the clip against some audio. One person, shared the clip set against rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine’s single “GOOBA”.All of this is to say that the pandemic, which temporarily shut down Disney’s attractions, clearly took a toll on poor John.But under Disney’s reopening guidelines (along with a bit of repair), the animatronic will hopefully be able to see new life again
