Summer of Sangria

Hope you all had a great 4th of July! Being that this week was a holiday and Summer is in full swing, we thought we'd post a little something different this time. Ever since Memorial Day, we've been experimenting with different White and Red Sangria recipes, our obvious drink of choice for Summer. As of the 4th of July they have been mastered and we thought we'd share them with you. Without giving away too many secrets, we've listed the ingredients we used. Combine them as you see fit. The trick is lots of fruit that marinates in it's concoction for a few hours. Enjoy...
Salud! Saude! Sante! Salute! Cheers!
