Fruity Summer Sangria
  • 1 bottle red wine (dry red wine is traditionally used in sangria, though I prefer something fruitier)
  • 3 tablespoons Grand Marnier (orange liqueur)
  • 3 tablespoons spiced dark rum
  • 3 tablespoons sugar (optional)
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced
  • sparkling water for topping off, if desired
  1. In a large pitcher, stir together wine, orange liqueur, rum and sugar, until sugar is dissolved. Add cinnamon sticks, strawberries, lime, lemon and orange to the wine mixture, and lightly mull the fruit to release juices.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours; overnight is best. Stir in sparkling water, if desired, then serve over ice.
