Summer is just around the corner (that’s right, 80s tomorrow) and all this talk about beach, bbqs and the thought of all the fun in the sun made me to think of my favorite summer drink…sangria! This is a wonderful drink that is surprisingly easy to make.  I can guaranteyou and your guests will keep coming back for refills!

Urban Sangria

  • 1 bottle of red wine (I personally like using Merlot or Cabernet)
  • 1 cup of orange juice
  • 1/4 cup of Amaretto liqueur
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 orange, sliced
  • 1/2 green apple, sliced
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • 1 cup Sprite
    In a large pitcher combine the wine, orange juice, liqueur and sugar. Mix well. Add fruit slices. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Right before serving, add the sprite. Serve in large goblets or stemless wine glasses. SALUD!
