If you've never sipped sangria made with sparkling wine (a.k.a. champagne), prepare to be wowed! This recipe

Pineapple is well represented on this list, but we've gotta let one of our all-time favorite fruits in on the fun. Welcome to the party, mango! It's one of the most popular fruits in the world for a reason. Blend it up
with some rum, plus vanilla protein powder for creaminess! It's basically a smoothie... for adults only.
