I love making Sangria - especially at Festive times. This is my go to easy recipe...
1 to 2 bottles of dry white wine depending on taste ( I use Sauvignon Blanc)
1 liter bottle of Club Soda
1 liter bottle of lemon-lime sparkling seltzer water
2 cups sugar
2 large oranges (one to slice and one to squeeze juice)
3 limes (one to slice, one to juice, and one for garnish)
2 large apples
(any other fruit you like)
Do not peel the fruit. Wash and thinly slice one of the oranges, one lime, and the apples.
Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher, adding as much of the wine as desired (taste and add more if needed to reduce sweetness).
Squeeze the juice of the remaining orange and one lime into mixture.
Cover with plastic wrap and allow to stand overnight in fridge. Serve over ice. Garnish with lime slice.
I made these for Santa's Sleigh. I think they are sooo cute.
tiny Styrofoam balls ( I used 2 sizes)
Just paint a snowflake on the ball - put a little glitter paint over it - add gem - pour in some Styrofoam and you have a beautiful ornament!
