Summertime and Sangria Wine

They just go together!!  When we lived in Spain, we learned to make our own Sangria.  Here's a quicky recipe.

About 4 cups Burgundy Wine
1 Liter of Orange Soda
1 liter Lemon Lime Soda
4 jiggers Triple Sec
1 cup of Sugar
2 Red Delicious Apples, cored and cut into bite size pieces
3 Valencia Oranges, chopped into bite size pieces (leave the skin on!)
2 cups green seedless grapes, sliced in half

Mix the first 4 ingredients and stir well.  Add the fruit and some ice and allow to stew for an hour or so.  Enjoy!

Now, I Weight Watchered this up using diet sodas and Splenda.  This will serve a number of people for a day or two (unless you have a drinking problem?!) I figure its about 2 points an 8 oz serving.  It's yummy and goes good with a BarBQue or Stuffed Mushrooms which is on my menu tonite!! 

This picture is before adding ice.  That will dilute it significantly.  It needs it, trust me!!
