"...Don't pick the prickly pear by the paw, When you pick a pear, Try to use the claw..." *ahem* And on to that recipe...

  • 1 (750ml) bottle Zinfandel

  • Sugar
  • Fresh fruit thinly sliced - Apples (red, green), oranges, melons, star fruit, lemons, limes, and strawberries

Directions
  1. Blend wine, brandy, tequila, orange juice, lemon juice, pear cactus nectar, vanilla beans and cinnamon sticks. Add sugar, to taste. You may also add club soda, to taste, if you enjoy a more balanced body.

Yum! And, today is above 70! I count that as summery enough to make sangria. :)
