We're visiting a favorite local New Orleans themed resort and I can't get enough of the food and drinks here. So good! So I thought I'd stick with that theme and share a cajun sangria with y'all! Bon Appetite!

CAJUN SANGRIA

1 bottle red wine
4 oz. cognac
4 oz. Bacardi White Rum
1 oz. Grand Marnier
1 oz. fresh squeezed lemon juice
8 oz. fresh squeezed orange juice
2 oz. sugar in the raw
16 oz. Club Soda
2 oranges
2 apples
1 lemon
1 lime

Directions: 
Mix the sugar, cognac, Bacardi and Grand Marnier and marinate the fruit in the mixture, preferably in the refrigerator overnight. The next morning, in a large bowl or pitcher, mix the wine and marinated fruit mixture and put back into the refrigerator. Let sit until right before serving and then add the club soda. 

To drink, place fruit in bottom of a cup, fill with ice, then fill cup to about a half an inch from the top with sangria and place a slice of orange on top.
