Delicious Dish Tuesday... Elizabeth's Infamous Sangria!

Blogging has definitely been on the back burner for me these past couple of weeks as life has been completely crazy with lots of things going on.  That being said, what better way to get back into the swing of blogging than participating in one of my favorite link-ups!  That's right... I am back with you today to participate in Delicious Dish Tuesday sponsored by... Mary at Eat, Drink & Be Mary, Amanda at Coping with Frugality and Alesha at Full Time Mama.  As a welcome back to blogging I have finally decided to share with you all my infamous Sangria recipe!  I learned how to make this sangria when I was studying abroad in Granada, Spain and it is ALWAYS a hit.  In fact I went to a BBQ at my parents' house a few weeks ago where my mom's friends specifically requested it.  Now, this recipe might not make it taste exactly the same as mine as I don't actually measure anything out when I make the sangria, but this is definitely my best guess as to the measurements!

Elizabeth's Infamous Sangria

1 bottle of red wine (I used J. Lohr Cabernet this past time... but really any red wine will do)
2/3 c. Bacardi Limon
2/3 c. Cointreau (or any other orange flavored liquor)
1/3 c. Brandy
1/2 c. sugar
Half of a 2L Bottle of Ginger Ale
Various Fruits, cut into pieces (this time I used lemons, limes, oranges, apples and strawberries)

1. Cut fruit into small pieces and throw into a big pitcher.
I always cut extra and put it into a container so that if I need to make another pitcher or people eat the fruit I don't have to spend more time cutting it... but that is just me
2. Add wine and liquors to the pitcher.
3. Add sugar and mix all together.
4. Top with Ginger Ale
5. Enjoy!
