From The Jenny McCarthy Show Cocktail Files: Stay Hydrated During Coachella With The Sand-Gria

While we everyone on The Jenny McCarthy Show loves live music just as much as anyone else, none of us want to deal with all the dust, sand and hot sun that comes with Coachella. Instead, we plan to stay hydrated and cool (and possibly relax by the pool) with a “Sand-gria.” It’s the perfect drink for the spring weather without all that sand in our hair.
