Everyday recipes, life and craziness from Jen's house.

It is hot, hot, hot here.  How hot you may ask?  Hot.  The temperature is 103* and the heat index is 115*.  Hot.  Hot days call for cold drinks.  I wanted an adult beverage that was something fruity and  something that would quench my thirst.  This sangria fit the bill.  I combined several recipes that I found on the internet and came up with this concoction.  Enjoy~

Jen's Sangria

1 bottle red wine
1/2 c. Amaretto
1/2 c. orange flavored liquor (I used tangerine schnapps)
1/4 c. lemon juice
1/2 c. orange juice
1/2 c. lemonade concentrate
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 lime, thinly sliced
1 orange, thinly sliced
10 Marciano cherries

2 liters seltzer or soda water (or Lemon-lime soda)

Mix the bottle of wine, liquor, juices and fruit all together in a large picture.  Refrigerate until cold, the longer the better.  To serve, fill half of a glass with the sangria mix, fill the rest of the glass with the seltzer water.  Garnish with sliced fruit.  Enjoy!
