RED Sangria

Last night Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney traded accusations in what may be the last GOP Primary Debate.  While Mitt charged Santorum with being a career politician, Santorum called Mitt an inauthentic conservative of political convenience.  Ron Paul attacked all of his primary opponents, and Newt, true to form, condemned President Obama and the media. Primaries in Arizona and Michigan next Tuesday, and 11 more states the following week on Super Tuesday, should finally give us some insight regarding what the American people think.

RED Sangria
8 servings, 8 oz. each

A perfect drink for any conservative gathering, and it won’t leave you big and bloated.

1-1/3 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
2/3 cup orange juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 bottle (1500 ml) dry red wine (merlot, cabernet, beaujoulais, zinfandel)

Mix together juices and sugar in large pitcher 2 min. or until sugar is completely dissolved. Stir in wine; chill. 

To serve, fill glasses with cut-up fruit and ice and pour sangria over.

For cut-up fruit use sliced strawberries and blueberries for a patriotic look, or use oranges, peaches, halved grapes and whatever fruit you happen to have on hand.

This recipe can be increased in any amount for large gatherings.
