Citrus Sangria

I’m sure purists have a real definition for what Sangria is, but to me, it’s wine and fruit. Any wine and any fruit make a nice cocktail, as you can imagine, but this one is nice for the citrus coming in season.

Citrus Sangria

  • 1 lime
  • 1 orange
  • 1 bottle Pinot Noir
  • Sugar, to taste (optional)
  • Sparkline water for serving

Cut your lime and orange in half. Juice one half of each and put the juice in a pitcher. Slice the other half as thinly as possible and add to pitcher. Pour in your wine. Taste it, and if you like it sweeter, add some sugar. I like it a little dry. You can serve it straight like that, or serve it in a glass with half sparkling water, half sangria.

Tonight, I had a half a pomegranate hanging around, as I had grown tired of eating it straight, and added those lovely little ruby seeds in too.
