Okay so I did a fab little mini photo shoot of my drinks down by the river :) I had to... it looks so pretty! Big thanks to my mom who helped me lug my goodies down there to take the pictures (wasn't a huge task actually this spot is maybe 50 steps out our back door... I know spoiled Floridians!)
Okay, enough about the pictures back to the drink. It is soooo yummy! I'm drinking one right now. It's delicious. You should make it. ASAP! I used White Zinfandel because that's what I had in the fridge, but feel free to use your fave sweet rose or white wine. Also, add your fave fruits- I used an orange, strawberries, and lemons because I love those flavors together. Some other fruit I think would be fan-freaking-tastic? Peaches, limes, cherries, tangerines, and pears! Your fruit choice will lend loads of flavor to your sangria so choose your fruit wisely!
1 orange cut into rounds or wedges
1 lemon cut into rounds or wedges
1/2 cup of sliced strawberries
1 (750 mL) bottle of White Zinfandel
1/2 cup white rum
Sprite or 7-up to top glasses (I used diet 7-up because that's what I had!)
Step 1: Cut up your fruit and toss in the bottom of a pitcher.

Step 3: Fill your glass with ice. Fill half the glass (or more if you want a stronger drink!) with the sangria mixture, top with sprite & fruit, stir to combine.
ENJOY :-D and some more of the pretty river pictures for the road...
