Recipe type: Drinks
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 bottle red wine
  • ¼ cup hard liquor like rum, Grand Marnier, apricot brandy, etc. (I used half rum, half Grand Marnier)
  • ½ lemon, sliced
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • 1 medium or ½ large navel orange, sliced
  • 1 plum, sliced
  • 1 nectarine, sliced
  • 2 peaches, sliced (I used one regular, one white-fleshed)
  • 1 cup orange juice (fresh squeezed)
  • ¼ to ⅓ cup concentrated berry syrup (I used Saskatoon berry concentrate from Pearson's Berry Farm)
  • 7-UP, gingerale or club soda, as needed
Instructions
  1. Start chopping! Get all of your citrus and stone fruit sliced and put it in a large pitcher.
  2. Pour in all of the liquids, except for the sparkling beverage you choose to use (7-UP, ginger ale or club soda).
  3. Let the fruit, wine and other ingredients macerate for at least a couple of hours, or even overnight.
  4. When you are ready to serve, pour the glasses ⅔ to ¾ full of sangria mix and then top them off with the sparkling beverage of your choice. Obviously the more you add, the more diluted it will be. If you prefer your sangria not too sweet, stick with the club soda, as the other pop will just add more sugar.
  5. Drink up!
