I'm not much of wine drinker, I much prefer beer, but I do enjoy a glass of fruity sangria every once in a while. Here's my version of this classic wine cocktail.
1 bottle Spanish red wine
1 1/2 c fresh squeezed orange juice
1/4 c fresh squeezed lime juice
1/2 c pineapple juice
sliced oranges, limes, and pineapple
soda water (a fizzy pineapple soda works nicely too)
Combine wine and fruit juices, add sugar to taste. I used about 1/4 c of sugar. Add the sliced fruit (I didn't have any pineapple to spare but I did have a core that I threw in), chill for at least 4 hours.
Serve in a tall glass with additional fruit to garnish. Top off each glass with a splash of soda water for a bit of fizz.
