Summer Sangria

Sangria is so delicious and SO easy!  Try this recipe for your next Summer cookout or get-together. Summer Sangria (yield: approximately 3 quarts) 2 bottles of red wine ( I prefer a dry red like Pinot Noir) 1/2 cup brandy 1/2 cup Grand Marnier 1/4 cup sugar 4 T fresh lime juice 4 T fresh orange juice 1 thinly sliced lemon 1 thinly sliced orange 1 thinly sliced nectarine 1 unwaxed apple, cored and thinly sliced 12 pitted cherries  ( I used Rainier because they were on sale and they're so delicious) 1 (750 mL) bottle Lorina Pomegranate Blueberry Sparkling water Combine everything except the sparkling water in a large container.  Chill 1 - 2 hours.  Add sparkling water before serving and pour into glasses with ice.  Garnish with "boozey" fruit if desired.
