So I made the Sangria this weekend. I received so many recommendations here on the blog, via email and out in the world wide recipe below follows a few different recipes.

It was delicious and tasted like a whole lot more!

Here’s what I did...

1.5 liter bottle of dry red wine (Alice White 2006 Shiraz)
1 cup spiced rum
½ cup dark rum
¼ cup triple sec
⅓ cup sugar
1 cup orange juice
1 orange,sliced and quartered
1 lemon, sliced and quartered
1 lime, sliced
1 apple, sliced and quartered
1 pear, sliced and quartered

Mix the booze and sugar, until sugar is dissolved. Add the fruit and refrigerate over night.

Chill your bottle of wine. Two hours prior to serving, mix the wine, orange juice and fruit/booze mixture.

Allow to mellow for two hours prior to serving. Pour over plenty of ice.

This was the second batch (there were three!)...sorry for the blur, my senses had already been impaired at this point!

Be careful if you plan to eat the fruit! It's Potent!

Oh, that fruit was powerful! I'm so glad you had so much good food for us to eat, cuz that first glass of sangria totally had me buzzing! The food helped me slow down. :-)

Looks like a winner to me......

I like that the picture is slightly out of focus - kind of like my wonderful blurred vision after a few glasses of sangria!
