“Sangria is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”

Here’s a wonderful and delicious Sangria recipe from Whole Foods. It’s quick and easy to make, and is a perfect substitute for red wine during the summer.

Serves 4

Save your best bottle for another day. For sangria, use a reasonably priced, reasonably good unoaked red wine with fruity, spicy notes. When peaches aren’t in season, a ripe pear or an apple is a good substitute. We’ve added orange liqueur, which imparts a sweet citrus punch. You may leave it out if you wish.

1 (750-ml) bottle red wine
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup orange liqueur, such as triple sec (optional)
1/4 cup sugar
1 small orange, thinly sliced
1 small lemon, thinly sliced
1 peach, pitted, peeled, and diced
1 cup 365 Everyday Value™ Italian lemon soda, chilled

In a large pitcher, combine wine, orange juice, orange liqueur and sugar; stir to dissolve sugar. Stir in fruits and refrigerate until chilled and the flavors have blended, 2 to 8 hours. Just before serving, gently stir in soda; serve sangria over ice.
