Sangria

I have lived in wine country all my life. There are photos of me at five years old drinking from the wine press as we prepared to barrel our homemade wine. I appreciate good wine, red wine, white wine, cheap wine, sparkling wine, and of course a nice wine cocktail. I am not generally hard to please, but I also know something good when I have it. 

This is my favorite go-to Sangria recipe because it is simple, quick, and it still tastes like the base wine and the tangy fruit it is composed of. As perfect for a summer day as it is for a drink along with light Spanish tapas, or heavy Spanish stews. Just try it already!
