Red Sangria to Please the Taste Buds

Whether you are having your own cookout or someone asks you to bring something to theirs, Red Sangria is always a hit.  It is light and fruity and fits the warm weather perfectly.  It is a drink that will please most taste buds, as it basically tastes like fresh fruit.  A huge bowl goes a long way, and it only takes about 5 minutes to make, so you do not have to stress about slaving away in the kitchen.  Once people try it, you will be asked to bring it everywhere you go. 

You will need: 

  • 1 bottle of a red wine of your choice
  • 1 lemon cut up
  • 1 orange cut up
  • 1 lime cut up
  • 2 table spoons of sugar
  • 1 shot or orange juice
  • 2 shots of triple sec
  • 1 cup of strawberries
  • 1 can of diced pineapples
  • 4 cups of ginger ale

Once you have all of your ingredients purchased and prepared, be sure to have an extra large pitcher for your beverage.  Begin by pouring your wine into the pitcher.  Next, take your lemon, orange and lime slices and squeeze them into the wine.  Remove the seeds from the remaining cut up fruit and then place the fruit inside of the pitcher.  Dump in the pineapples, followed by the sugar and orange juice.  Chill the Sangria in the fridge over night for the best results. Chilling it allows the flavors time to marinate into one another, providing an excellent taste.  When you are ready to serve it, add the strawberries and some ice. 

Warning:  From here on out, people will know you as that person who makes the awesome Sangria, so be sure this is what you want to be in charge of before making it.
