A light fruit and wine drink like sangria is the perfect beverage for casual afternoon gatherings. Sangria looks especially nice when served in a glass pitcher, which lets everyone admire your fruit-filled handiwork.


Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus 2 hours steeping

Yield: 4 servings

1 orange

1 lemon

1 lime

1 bottle fruity red wine, such as Pinot Noir

1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

2 cups ice cubes

  1. Scrub the orange, lemon, and lime under running water.

  2. Cut them into 1/4-inch slices.

  3. Cut each slice into quarters to form wedges.

  4. Place the fruit wedges in a pitcher.

  5. Pour in the wine and let the sangria sit for about 2 hours at room temperature.

    This wait allows the flavors to combine. It can steep as long as a day in the refrigerator.

  6. Just before serving, stir in the orange juice and ice cubes.

  7. Serve immediately.
