Fiesta Sangria

Here is a yummy cocktail for your 4th of July smashed bash!

For one big punch bowl, but feel free to halve the ingredients:

2 Oranges — thinly sliced
1 Lemon — thinly sliced
1 Lime — thinly sliced
2 1.75ml bottles white wine
2 cups Grand Marnier
1 1/2 cups Brandy
2 bunch Long-stemmed lemon verbena and/or mint

kiwi, strawberry and banana slices
1 package Frozen blueberries
1 bottle sparkling wine or club soda

Place oranges, lemon, lime and other seasonal fruits in a large container. Add wine, orange liqueur, brandy and herbs. Cover and refrigerate at least overnight, or up to three days.

Fill a clear glass pitcher with sangria, adding more freshly sliced seasonal fruits, frozen blueberries and fresh long-stemmed herbs. (Soft fruits such as fresh strawberries or sliced kiwi also may be added before serving.) Pour into wine glasses with a splash of club soda or champagne, a tiny cluster of grapes and a fresh herb sprig.

Makes about 40 4-oz servings.
