A summery sangria!

When I'm entertaining, I like to have a cocktail that is a showstopper. Sangria fits the bill perfectly, plus it's simple to make, and looks amazing in a glass or pitcher. This is one of my favorite drinks because fruit is a main ingredient. The fruit shines through the wine and is wonderfully colorful. Sangria can easily be changed to fit any occasion, and can be made any time of year. For fall, make an apple sangria. At christmas, make a cranberry sangria. Don't be afraid to play around with different combinations of wine, fruit, and liquors. The only limit is your imagination. So have fun with it and invite some friends to try out your experiments!
