There are few drinks I adore as much as a good Sangria. Chow in New Haven, CT makes the most amazing sangrias (red & white) that I've ever had. Here's a recipe from MSN - make sure you garnish with lots of fruit...and if the fruit sits in the pitcher for a while before you serve it, all the better!
Recipe courtesy of NYC's Rosa Mexicano restaurants.
9 oz. red or white wine
3 oz. Triple Sec
3 oz. apricot brandy
6 oz. orange juice
3 oz. Sprite
3 heaping Tbsp. chopped green and red grapes, apples, and cucumbers
Mix all ingredients together in a clear 50 oz. pitcher. Fill remainder of pitcher with ice and stir with a wooden spoon. Garnish each glass with fresh fruit slices, such as green apples for red sangria or peaches for white sangria. Serves four.
