Red Wine Sangria
1 Bottle of red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Rioja, Shiraz)
1 Lemon cut into wedges
1 Orange cut into wedges
1 Lime cut into wedges
2 Tbsp sugar
Splash of orange juice
2 Shots of gin
1 Cup of sliced strawberries or raspberries
1 Small can of diced pineapples (with juice)
4 Cups ginger ale
Pour wine in the pitcher and squeeze the juice wedges from the lemon, orange and lime into the wine.
Toss in the fruit wedges (leaving out seeds if possible) and add sugar, orange juice, and gin.
Add ginger ale and ice just before serving.
If you'd like to serve right away, use chilled red wine and serve over lots of ice. However, remember that the best Sangrias are chilled around 24 hours in the fridge. - allowing the flavors to really marinate into each other.
