(16) The Columbia's Red Sangria

We love going to the Columbia Restaurant. It's really close to where we live, but for whatever reason, we only go when we have company. They make the most INCREDIBLE sangria. I love the white (check out the recipe here) but tonight called for red! I like my sangria a little sweeter, so I added some Sprite to help out with the sweetness factor!

The Columbia's Red Sangria

Serves: 4

1 bottle Spanish red wine
1/4 cup Spanish brandy
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup club soda
1 sliced lemon
1 sliced orange
2-3 whole cherries

Mix all ingredients in a large pitcher. Stir with a wooden spoon until well mixed. Pour into large wine glasses. Garnish with orange slices and cherries. Add ice to pitcher.
