Night Cap ...

Just a bit of leftover sangria to end the night. So delicious! This is one of my favorite sangrias to make [I have about 3! One involving rum, as well ... always a hit.] Here is my recipe for this great summer cool-down concoction that I like to call Zombee Sangria ...

You'll need:
2 bottles, Moscato
1 bottle, white cranberry juice cocktail
2 cups, Sprite [Sprite Zero!]
3 granny smith apples
3 pears
2 lemons
ice, as needed

I always start by chopping up the apples into wedges, the pears into squares, [hehe] and the lemons into wheel slices. Place all the fruit [or what you think looks best, or whatever will fit in your punch bowl, really] in a large punch bowl and add the Moscato. Let that sit for a little while, the apples and pears are going to soak up the sweet wine for an added boost when you bite into it later! Then add the other ingredients, stir and taste to see if you need to add any sugar. I never have to add sugar, but if you don't mind the extra calories and have a really out of control sweet tooth, you might need a dash of sugar stirred in. Serve over ice and don't forget to get a little fruit in each cup!
