A Sangria Salute to Memorial Day

imageHappy Memorial Day! A wonderful drink to enjoy today is a Sangria.

Sangrias are a light, citrus fruit drink that is quite refreshing on a hot Spring day! It is the traditional wine of Spain. Its made with fine red wine and natural citrus flavors.

TRADITIONAL SANGRIA (Four Servings)
1/4 cup of Orange Juice
1/4 cup of Orange Liqueur (optional), such as Gran Marnier or Cointreau
1 tablespoon of Sugar (I like to rim the glass with sugar)
1 cup of chilled Soda Water
Sliced apples, oranges, limes and whatever fruit you enjoy
Ice
Combine the wine with the orange juice, liqueur and fruit. Refrigerate for at least an hour, ideally overnight. Add chilled soda water and a small amount of ice right before serving.
YUMMY!!!
