Perfect cool Sangria. Great with Paella.

"Great recipe. Even our guests who didn't think they liked sangria were going back for a second glass."


1 lemon
1 lime
1 orange
1 cups rum
1/2 cup white sugar
1 bottle dry red wine; 750 milliliter
1 cup orange juice

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



Have the fruit, rum, wine, and orange juice well chilled. Slice the lemon, lime and orange into thin rounds and place in a large glass pitcher. Pour in the rum and sugar. Chill in refrigerator for 2 hours to develop the flavors.

When ready to serve, crush the fruit lightly with a wooden spoon and stir in the wine and orange juice. Adjust sweetness to taste.

Serve over ice.

Too sweet. Less OJ, less rum, maybe cut it with vodka to give it a kick.
