Kiwi is a delicious small fruit from China about the size of an egg. The outside is a fuzzy brown, while the inside is a tender green. Interestingly the fruit was named after the flightless bird from New Zealand! It was originally called a "gooseberry" but the sellers figured that the cute name of "kiwi" would do better in many markets :)
If you do not have pinot noir, any gentle red wine will do.
3 750ml bottles Pinot Noir
1 2 liter bottle Ginger Ale
2 Tbsp lime juice
Peel the kiwis and slice them into wheels. Mix together the red wine, kiwis, ginger ale and lemon juice until well mixed. Refrigerate overnight.
Serve the next day from a large pitcher filled with ice.
To turn this into a single-glass sangria recipe, a typical assumption is that one 750ml bottle of wine yields four large glasses of wine. Divide all ingredients shown by four. If you're making just one glass worth you probably don't want to wait for the overnight soaking. If the mixture doesn't soak, you just won't get as much of the fruit / berry flavors permeating the sangria.

Note: I created these sangria recipes and have had them online for years. If you find similar sangria recipes elsewhere, it's because someone copied my idea. I do appreciate it when visitors write in to warn me about the plagiarism - but usually there's not much I can do about it! What's really funny is when they copy my design right down to my sangria pitcher. That's a bit much :)
