Red and White Sangria

May 4, 2013

Classic Cinco de Mayo! Also good on Memorial Day, July 4th and another other hot summer night!  We served these at my daughter’s party, on a 100 degree day in August before she began college.  Credit to my sister in  law, Robin for these recipes ( and a load of  other  things  she made  possible    during her  stay !) The best Sangria sits over night, topped the next  day with  ginger ale. Doubling the recipes are definitely recommended!
