See that? That's fruit. That's been soaking in wine, vodka and some other stuff. I just added some 7-Up to it and it is the most deeeeeeeeeeeeeelightful beverage ever. There's pineapple in there. Nothing retained it's color. LOL

Here is the recipe - I changed a couple of things - I used fresh pineapple, I haven't added the berries (yet LOL) and instead of orange juice, I put in a splash of key lime juice.

Here's to a clear butt!! ROFL


* 1 Bottle of red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Rioja, Zinfandel, Shiraz)
* 1 Lemon cut into wedges
* 1 Orange cut into wedges
* 1 Lime cut into wedges
* 2 Tbsp sugar
* Splash of orange juice or lemonade
* 2 Shots of white rum or vodka
* 1 Cup of raspberries or strawberries (may use thawed or frozen)
* 1 Small can of diced pineapples (with juice)
* 4 Cups ginger ale

Pour wine into a large pitcher and squeeze the juice wedges from the lemon, orange and lime into the wine. Toss in the fruit wedges (leaving out seeds if possible) and pineapple then add sugar, orange juice and rum/vodka. Chill overnight. Add ginger ale, berries and ice just before serving. If you'd like to serve right away, use chilled red wine and serve over lots of ice. However, remember that the best Sangrias are chilled around 24 hours in the frig. - allowing the flavors to really marinate into each other.

Anything with vodka is good for me, but I'd put in LOTS more vodka!
