20--- Cava Sangria

Time for a fall party! This adult beverage is so easy to make and so delicious. You can use fall fruits and the red wine of your choice to really make it "your own".

Although some alcohol (ethanol) may have heart-healthy benefits, it can also add liquid calories to your diet, especially when that alcohol is mixed with sugar, soda, or juice. Moderation, moderation, moderation!!

Cava Sangria

Makes 1/2 gallon (8 glasses)

1 bottle dry red wine of your choice

1 oz Triple Sec

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/4 cup orange juice (no pulp)

1/3 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups unflavored seltzer water, chilled

1 lemon, sliced

1 orange, sliced

6 strawberries, halved

1 small apple, cored and diced

Combine fruit, wine, Triple Sec, lemon juice, orange juice, and sugar in a large pitcher. Allow to sit overnight. Prior to serving, mix in seltzer water. Pour sangria over ice in glasses and top with a scoop of marinated fruit.
