I Love Sangria

Its true, I do LOVE Sangria!! First off I want to apologize to anyone who is a true wine lover.....Sorry.
I think of riesling as about the only drinkable wine, but while working at this great little wine bar and bistro I was intoduced to a treat; Sangria :) So began my love....since then I have altered and added and changed a few things and come up with what I think is the greatest recipe. I don't use any special wine, usually a merlot or cabernet and a chardonney or pinot grigio. Theres my trick, maybe you caught it (and maybe true wine lovers are apalled by it) I like to use one bottle red and one bottle of white wine....I feel like it allows for a balanced flavor!
I know that whenever I make this there is never enough to go around, so try it and share it....or don't I totally understand :)

Loves, SMK

Sara's Sassy Sangria

3 oranges
1 lemon
1 lime
3 apples
1 brandy shooter
1 peach schnapps shooter
1 bottle red wine
1 bottle white wine
1/3 cup sugar

Start out by uncorking both bottles of wine and emptying them into your pitcher, mix in sugar.
Next empty both shooters into pitcher.

Now halve 2 oranges, lemon, and lime, squeeze juice into pitchers and drop in all fruit halves to soak over night, dice up one apple and add into the mix. Now cover and refrigerate over night to let all the flavors blend.

Before serving dice up remaining apples and split between carafes, slice last orange to use as a garnish on pitcher and all the carafes.....when you are ready just fill each glass and Enjoy!!!
