Sangria for spring!

We are so glad that, in April, Chicago has finally decided to shake off winter. I got a few herbs to start growing, we're firing up the grill for the first time, and I decided that sangria was in order for our grillin' day. We also mixed up some guacamole to munch on while the grill gets going. (I'd give you a recipe for guacamole, but hubby makes it and he doesn't measure things... it's a simple combination of avocado, cilantro, and lime juice.)

750 ml red, Spanish, rioja wine
about 1/2 apple (I use macs), sliced 1/4 inch thick
about 1/2 orange, sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 lemon, sliced 1/4 inch thick
2 limes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
6 to 8 strawberries, rinsed, stemmed and chopped
1 can Sprite (or similar)

Combine wine and fruit in a pitcher, refrigerate many hours, overnight if possible. When ready to serve, add sprite and mix thoroughly. Serve over ice.

Easy peasy!
