Sometimes getting a party put together is hard when you’re pressed for time. We relish time spent with friends during get-togethers filled with food, fun, and great drinks; no one should be stressed about making the perfect evening. This Sangria recipe is as breezy and easy as we approach Fall evenings, and is simple to adapt to whatever’s in the pantry or looks good at the market – just flavor to your taste. It comes together quickly and easily and is perfect for a party.



-1 bottle white wine
-2 cans regular Fresca


-Fruit: Berries and/or citrus (Leave out the grapefruit to avoid a bitter aftertaste)
-Liquor: Malibu, Chambord, Limoncello, etc.
-Fruit juices: Cranberry, pomegranate, pineapple, etc.
-Herbs or spices: Mint leaves, Basil leaves, cinnamon, etc.
