Summer Sangria Recipe

When it gets hot, its important to stay cool. Why not whip up a simple sangria recipe for friends and family on a hot summers day? Sangria is a delicious  fruit “punch” originally created in Spain. If you are not a fan of red wine, swap out the recipe with white wine or Rose. They are made with red wine, fresh fruits and soda water. They are so easy to make! We love this recipe from the epicurious.com
