It's become a yearly tradition of mine to prepare Sangria every Fourth of July to accompany our bbq-ing festivities.
My simple and easy Sangria Ingredients:
1 bottle of wine (any red wine will work-- merlot, cabernet)
1 bottle of Club Soda
Pour red wine into a pitcher. Cut up all your fruits and squeeze them into the pitcher of wine leaving the leftover skins in the pitcher. You can leave some nicely sliced oranges and apples for visual appeal. Chill over night. Pour sangria over ice and add in a splash of club soda.
Voila! Refreshing Sangria.
