-- Cheers to Summer! --

Summer is just around the corner and a friend's invitation to a rooftop gathering prompted me to think of my favorite summer drink...sangria! This is a wonderful drink that is surprisingly easy to make. I can guarantee your guests will keep coming back for refills.


The Urban Sangria

1 bottle of red wine (I personally like using a 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. Enjoy!
