Simple Sangria Recipe



I felt inspired by my friends this week to post this since we all got together for a drink. This is a very easy recipe that you can build on and make your own.

Ingredients
1 bottle of light- or medium-bodied red wine
2 cups lemonade
2 tablespoons sugar
1 ounce (2 tablespoons) brandy, optional
1 navel orange, thinly sliced
1/2 pint large, plump blackberries, strawberries or other berries
1 cup club soda

Directions
1.Combine wine, lemonade, sugar, and brandy (if using) in a large pitcher and stir to dissolve sugar. Add fruit and pour in club soda. Refrigerate for 1 hour or more before serving to allow fruit to macerate and sweeten sangria. Serve in tall glasses filled with ice.

I'm wondering if you've tried leaving out the red wine and making it a virgin.

Sue, maybe you can use grape juice instead?
