Sangria

SangriaOnce when I was invited to a Latin-themed party, I had to come up with a good contribution on short notice.  I pulled this recipe from a random website, and it was a real winner.

2 apples
2 limes
2 oranges
2 cups rum, brandy, or a combination
1 cup white sugar
2 (750 milliliter) bottles dry red wine
2 cups orange juice

Chill the fruit, rum, wine, and orange juice.  Slice the lemon, lime and orange into thin rounds and place in a large glass pitcher.  Pour in the rum and sugar.  Chill in refrigerator for 2 hours to develop the flavors.

When ready to serve, crush the fruit lightly with a wooden spoon and stir in the wine and orange juice. Adjust sweetness to taste.
