I thought I might do something different and suggest a summer drink that is not only simple to concoct but easy for when friends drop in. Spanish Sangria just happens to be one of those drink that tosses household ingredients and results in something spectacular. I do not use lemonade or tonic in this, leaving the red wine and orange juice to speak for itself with the fruits.
