Taste of Tuesday Sangria!!!

Linking up with Ashley and Jessica 
for a Taste Of Tuesday!

Every party that we have at our home, from celebrating the 4th of July, Christmas Eve, and random get togethers, I always make a red sangria.
Sangria can be as festive as you want it and as strong as you want it and to all of you ladies that have retail parties with your friends at your house, I promise you that they will buy more stuff after consuming a few glasses!
 *this means more free stuff from your consultant, Duh!
What you will need

2 Large bottles of red wine. 
Any red will do but I usually chose a blend to enhance the flavor with the different types of grapes. They do not have to be the same either!

1/2 bottle of any fruit flavored vodka (1/2 of a 750 ml sized bottle)

2 ounces of peach or apricot brandy
(feel free to omit this if you don't like it, it does have a strong flavour)

1 cup of simple syrup 
(1 cup of sugar brought to a boil with 1 cup of water)
1/2 gallon of OJ 
I usually use the Tropicana 50

1 large can of pineapple juice

lemons, limes, oranges, strawberries, blueberries etc. The sky is the limit, but I don't recommend using pineapples. They usually break apart and clogs the spout on the dispenser. Then you have to bust out a ladle and it just makes a mess.

You can also add a can of Ginger Ale right before serving it, to give it some fizz.     

Cut up all of your fruit and add it to the bottom of the dispenser and then add all of the liquids. Try to make this at least 24 hours before hand, it will take any bite of the boozy taste out.

Chill in the fridge until ready to serve. Serve this over ice and garnish it with whatever you want. I like mustache straws or little umbrellas. 

With the weekend only being 4 days away, get this brewing NOW! And by summer time everyone will be asking for it! It's so good.

Happy Tuesday!
