Delicious! From the Food and Wine Website. Well worth the time and effort. Elevates Sangria to the level of a real drink you can serve with a straight face at an adult party.

I used Sweet Vermouth instead of Punt e Mes, but Punt e Mes means roughly half sweet, half sour. I used high quality pre-squeezed OJ with good results. Obviously, fresh squeezed would elevate this to another level and would be well worth the effort. Do NOT however use prepared lime juice. Squeeze this fresh. I have never found one that does not taste just awful and you will be very disappointed. I don't particularly care for cinnamon so did not use a stick to garnish. I sliced an orange and floated it in the pitcher to save sanity at a party and it worked well if you don't have a bartender. The oranges to tend to turn a not so pleasant color rather quickly however. Enjoy! This is one recipe that is very worth it. I will try to find and add the Chef's name to give the credit he deserves for this one! [I posted this recipe.]
