Blood Orange Sangria

1 lime
1 lemon
1 orange

1 bottle dry red table wine (ie. Cote Sud by Domaine Lafage)

1/2 c. Stirrings Blood Orange Mixer*

1 bottle Freixenet Cava (or other Brut champagne), well chilled

Wash fruits well, slice into 1/8 inch rounds, discarding ends. Reserve some of the slices for garnish & place remaining slices in glass pitcher. Pour wine & Stirrings Mixer over fruit; stir to combine. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to allow flavors to blend.

Cut reserved fruit slices in half; place a piece of each in large wine glasses. Add 3 oz of Sangria mix. Pour in 3 oz of Cava/champagne; swirl gently to combine.

*Stirrings Mixers can be found at World Market & Fresh Market. You can substitute Orange Juice if you don't have the mixer.

Always made Sangria with some stuff called Vino Tavola - came in a half gallon with a red check tablecloth on the label. I bet yours is better.
