I recently went to an end-of-summer party.  The food was great, and the drinks were even better!  My friend shared her recipe for this cheap and easy Sangria, so I could pass it along! (This recipe makes a lot, but can be altered as needed.)
  • 5 large oranges, washed.  Slice three of the oranges.  Juice the other three.
  • 3 large lemons, washed and sliced
  • 1 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 cup Triple Sec
  • 4 (750 ml) bottles of red wine, chilled
  • grapes, berries and apples, washed (optional)
  1. Prepare the sangria 4-8 hours before serving, so the flavors intensify.
  2. Add orange and lemon slices (and optional fruit) to two large pitchers (equally).  Add 1/2 cup of sugar to each, and use a wooden spoon to stir the fruit slices and sugar together.
  3.  Stir in orange juice, Triple Sec, and wine (again, divided equally between the two pitchers).
  4. Refrigerate until ready to serve.  Add ice, if desired.  (see note)
  5. Before serving, stir to remix.

*You could also freeze the berries and grapes the night before, and use them as ice to keep the beverage cold.
