Friendsgiving is coming up, along with other holidays giving you the "okay" to eat more than your weight. How about you drink your weight too? Just kidding. Don't take this as a challenge, but it's not so much of a challenge to make sangria.

I seem to always come back to this recipe because of how simple it is, yet yummy!

You will need:

1 thinly sliced orange

1 thinly sliced grapefruit

1 thinly sliced lemon

2 cups of cut strawberries

1 cup of blue berries

1 cup of raspberries

1 cup of orange juice

1 750 ml bottle of sweet wine. I prefer white Riesling.

1 750 ml bottle of champagne.

In a large punch bowl, mix in all the fruits along with the bottle of wine. I usually let it sit in the fridge at least 3 hours prior to expecting guests. DO NOT pour the champagne until you're about to serve. Otherwise, the champagne will be more like chamPAIN.

Finally, serve and enjoy... and don't drive if you're enjoying it a little too much.

Okay you're basically prepared for the holidays now!

You're welcome.
