Summer Sangria Recipe

Find the Original Recipe on MintDesignBlog.com
By mid-August, it always feels like summer is winding down, but it's not true! We still have a whole month of summer- Fall "officially" starts on September 23rd this year. So get outside and enjoy the sun with some summer sangria. I love this recipe from The Fauxmartha:

What You'll Need:
1 bottle of dry red wine (no need to make it an expensive one)
1 cup freshly squeeze orange juice
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup tequila 
1 orange, sliced
1/2 lb strawberries, sliced
1 lime, sliced
Sparkling water

Directions:
  1. Combine the sugar and a 1/2 cup of the orange juice in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, whisking frequently, until the sugar dissolves. 
  2. After the sugar/OJ mix has cooled completely, stir in the remaining orange juice. 
  3. Pour the wine, tequila, and the cool orange juice mixture into a pitcher or carafe. 
  4. Stir thoroughly and add the sliced fruit. Allow the mixture to sit in the fridge for 4+ hours.
  5. Serve over ice with a splash of sparkling water. Cheers!
