Summertime Sangria


1 bottle of full-bodied red or white wine
2 teaspoons sugar (or to taste)
3 tablespoons cointreau, triple sec or other orange-flavored liquor
3 tablespoons freshly-squeezed orange juice
1 tablespoon freshly-squeezed lime juice
assorted fruits
1 cup club soda or sparkling water

Cooking Instructions

Mix together the wine, sugar, orange-flavored liquor, orange juice, and lime juice in a large pitcher. Cut the fruit into bite-sized pieces (or slices if you are using citrus fruits) and add to the wine mixture. Refrigerate for several hours (best for red sangria) or overnight (best for white sangria) so that the wine is fully infused with the flavors of the fruit.

Just before serving, add the sparkling water. Serve in large glasses over ice. Garnish the glasses with more fruit if desired.

Makes 4 to 6 drinks
