Super Simple Sangria


Yesterday, we had a BBQ at our home. We invited friends, family, and coworkers and had about 35 fabulous people show up bearing food, wine, and ready for a good time.

It was the kind of party where you are so busy making memories that you don’t think about photographing them.

It was the kind of party where you are having such a good time that you forget to eat.

It was the kind of party where your glass is always full and there is a smile plastered on your face.


Super Simple Sangria

2 bottles of cheap red wine (I used Covey Run $4.99 Cab Sauv and Merlot)
1 2-L ginger ale
2 oranges, sliced
2 limes, sliced
3 lemons, sliced
4 cups ice, more as necessary

A couple hours prior to serving, gently squeeze sliced fruit in large carafe or punch bowl. Add red wine, stir and let set.

Just prior to serving, stir in ginger ale and ice.

Serves two Hortin’s.
