Iced Sangria Recipe

This iced wine drink is a popular summer beverage in most Spanish-speaking countries. There are many variations of this recipe - try this one the first time, then you can change it to suit your own taste. It is traditional to serve in the pitcher for stirring before pouring. (Sangaree, a summer drink popular in the southern U.S., is derived from Sangria.)

1 orange
1 lemon
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup superfine sugar
1/2 t. orange bitters
1 bottle (four-fifths quart) semi-dry red wine

Step 1. Slice the orange and lemon into round, paper-thin slices.

Step 2. Put the fruit and the remaining ingredients in a pitcher large enough to allow room for the addition of ice cubes.

Step 3. Mix thoroughly, making sure the sugar is dissolved. Chill until ready to serve. Just before serving, add ice cubes.
