Some Summer Sangria

Now that summer is here I thought we should put up a good Summer Sangria recipe. (Important note, for a better Sangria, chill first part of recipe for about 24 hours in the frig. This allows the flavors to have a party of their own and really marinate into each other.)

What you Need:
1 Bottle of red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Rioja, Zinfandel, Shiraz)
1 Lemon cut into wedges
1 Orange cut into wedges
1 Lime cut into wedges
2 Tbsp sugar
Splash of orange juice
2 Shots of vodka or gin
1 Cup of sliced strawberries or raspberries
1 Small can of diced pineapples (with juice)
4 Cups ginger ale

What to Do:
Pour wine in a big bowl or pitcher and squeeze juice from the lemon, orange and lime wedges into the wine. Throw in wedges (try to keep out the seeds) and add sugar, orange juice and vodka or gin. Chill overnight. It's best to let these ingredients have a party of their own

Add ginger ale and ice just before serving.
