  • Sangria

    1/2 lime, thinly sliced
    1/2 lemon, thinly sliced
    1/2 orange, thinly sliced
    6 - 8 large ripe strawberries, hulled
    1/4 cup (60 ml) sugar, or to taste
    1 - 750 ml bottle dry red wine (preferably Spanish)
    1/4 cup (60 ml) Cognac or other good quality brandy
    Club soda, chilled
    Ice (optional)

    Combine the lime, lemon, and orange slices, strawberries, and
    sugar in a large pitcher. Mash with a wooden spoon to release
    the juices. Add the wine and brandy and stir to dissolve the sugar.
    Taste and add more sugar if necessary. Refrigerate for at least 1
    hour, or until well chilled. Just before serving add chilled club
    soda to taste. Serve in wine glasses, with or without ice.
