Red Sangria

Memorial Day celebrations are fun since it is a long weekend and many people get together to BBQ and welcome the beginning of Summer into their lives! But, being a former military officer and married to one, we know that remembering those who paid the ultimate sacrifice and honoring the fallen is what this weekend is about. They will never be forgotten.

I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy some Red Sangria! I've been making this for years and my mom has a smaller pitcher, so I only did one bottle of wine and halved the rest of the recipe. We will be having a crab and shrimp boil later that I will post about and I hope to try out a strawberry tart recipe!

Red Sangria

- 2 bottles red wine, prefer Cabernet Sauvignon
- 1 cup brandy
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/4  cup orange liqueur
- 1 lb. strawberries, hulled and halved
- 2 limes, thinly sliced
- 2 oranges, thinly sliced
- 1 lemons, thinly sliced
- 1 can lemon-lime soda

1. Stir wine, brandy, sugar and orange liqueur together until sugar dissolves.
2. Add strawberries, limes, oranges and lemon and lightly mull to release the juices.
3. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
4. Add and stir in lemon-lime soda before serving!
