Lemon Sangria Recipe
Summertime conjures up images of lemonade stands and fresh lemonade served by the pool. Here's an adult version of lemonade which is very tasty!
1 750ml bottle red wine (Rioja preferred, but any would do)
6oz lemon juice
2 lemons, sliced up
1/2 cup sugar
1 2 liter bottle 7-up
Mix together the red wine, cognac, lemon juice, lemons and sugar in a large pitcher or bowl. Chill overnight.
The next day, add in the 7-up so the bubbles are fresh. Pour the sangria into a large pitcher over ice cubes. Garnish with lemon wheels.
A friend of mine, Nancy, adores this recipe. She mixes it up often to feature at her summer parties. Everyone who attends loves the sangria! It's got a great, refreshing flavor.

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 :)
