J & I are going camping this coming week with another couple and we're slim on cash. I hate beer and liquor is so expensive so I decided to make a Sangria to take with us so I and S can have something to drink with the guys. I got the recipe from here and it had many great reviews. I cant wait to try it.

1 Bottle of red wine (I used Barefoot Merlot b/c Merlot is sweeter)
1 Lemon cut into wedges
1 Orange cut into wedges
1 Lime cut into wedges
2 Tbsp sugar
Splash of orange juice or lemonade (I used OJ NO PULP)
1 Cup of raspberries (I used fresh & will add some blackberries)
1 Small can of diced pineapples (with juice)
4 Cups ginger ale

I poured the Merlot into a pitcher and cut up the orange, lemon, lime, and I added an apple (Golden Del.) Make sure to get as many of the seeds out as you can, you don't want to choke on those bad boys. Major party foul. Add pineapple & juice. Then add the 2 Tbs. of sugar. Mix and chill in the refrigerator. The longer you can let it sit the better :)

Before serving add the ginger ale and berries. Serve over ice if prefer ed.

This stuff was great and perfect for the camping trip. I'm making it to take to a pool party next weekend. Also plan to try it out with white wine instead of red and maybe use it as a punch for a friend's wedding.
