Sangria is such a refreshing summer drink and to easy make ahead for a party. I don’t use expensive red wine for this drink because the fruit and Cointreau mask any nuances in a good quality wine. You can also use white wine. I add a fourth of a cup of orange juice or apple juice concentrate to sweeten it, and any combination of fresh fruit and berries. I often like to serve it over ice with a splash of sparkling water for a really refreshing drink. Click here for the recipe….
