For sangria I used some Merlot and yes the label drew me in- it's a giraffe it's so silly everyone knows giraffes don't drink wine!
|I went a little crazy cutting fruit!|
1 bottle of red wine
1 Orange sliced
1 lemon sliced
10-12 strawberries-stemmed and sliced
8oz diced pineapple pieces w/juice
12oz Ginger ale
Here is the tricky part- in a large pitcher throw in orange,lemon, strawberries, pineapple. wait for it.... add wine and ginger ale! Put in the refrigerator. This makes about a full pitcher, make sure to let sit overnight or longer. The longer it sits the better it is! If you are making this for a party I recommend making a few pitchers- it goes fast!
If you have any leftover fruit and no more wine it makes yummy fruit water. It's a refreshing drink, just add the remaining fruit to another pitcher and add water- Chill over night!
