I love sangria. This was my first attempt in making it myself, and it couldn't have been any easier or more delicious. I will say this, though: I highly recommend a designated driver. It's dangerous! I started making this from Pioneer Woman's recipe, but I added orange juice just to have something in the pitcher that wasn't completely alcoholic. I will definitely make this again.
It's a shame that I didn't take a picture of the pitcher when it was full, but it was beautiful.
1 bottle red wine (I used Cabernet Sauvignon)
1 bottle white wine (I used Chardonnay)
1/2 cup rum
1/2 cup vodka
1/3 cup orange juice
3/4 cup sugar
1 orange, cut into slices
1 lemon, cut into slices
2 limes, cut into slices
Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher, and allow it to refrigerate overnight before serving. Serve cold or over ice. Have tongs out to retrieve fruit.
